REDEMPTION

BEHOLD THE POWER OF BLOCKING

It fits!

I don't know why I always forget what a magical cure-all blocking can be. I needed one measly inch. Just one inch to make myself feel comfortable in the sweater. And I got it!

Won't I just look fabulous singing my Christmas duet?

Or merely lounging in the backyard?

Resting after the drama

Oh the places this sweater and I will go.

As soon as it's warm enough for a lace sweater.

Spectacular!! A light suede jacket over that and you should be able to wear it even on chilly desert nights ;-)

So glad the blocking worked. The sweater is gorgeous.

Beautiful! I woke up the other night after a knitting dream and for some reason thought of this sweater and wondered if you had already blocked it. I can't tell you how happy I am that it fits!
