Mermaid Shawlette is Nearly Done, Or, I Can Start a New Project Guilt-Free28 October 2013 | by Jen in Knit & Crochet
I started this project over a year ago! I recently finished up the knitting part (with the sore wrists to prove it) and all I need to do is block it. I’ve read several comments on Ravelry where knitters have had to “aggressively” block it. I’m pretty sure I know what that means but cannot help but imagine an out of control shawl that needs to be man-handled and subdued and stuck with a million pins to get it to calm down. Hopefully it won’t be quite that dramatic. (I’ve never done any “real” blocking before and find myself a little bit at a loss. I don’t think I have the supplies needed.)
As far as I’m concerned though I’m done and free to move on to another knitted project. I told myself I could not start another until this shawl was off my needles. See, I do finish stuff (sort of). I’ve got some things queued up though I have not settled on the order yet. I really want a cardigan to wear that I’m happy with and that I can wear all the time.
Anyone knitting/crocheting something right now? Or have projects in the queue?
