Blocking Line Break

I got Line Break on the blocking board today.  A little bath in some warm water made it substantially more cooperative, and the blocking wires helped establish very smooth edges.  Honestly, you would hardly know it was the same piece of knitting. Post blocking, the fabric is so light that it feels like a whisper, and even though it’s wool, I would wear it year round.

I’m getting a bit impatient with the drying time, but there’s really no way to rush that part.  I am thrilled with the result on this project.  I love the color, but I especially love the shape. Since it’s asymmetrical, it’s all ready to swoop dramatically across your shoulder, or just wrap you up all cozy.
