Yay, my first blocked project! I soaked it Tuesday morning, put it on a dinner plate and left it all day and overnight just to be sure that it was dry. It has much more drape and slouch, and it also sits nice and flat when it's not being worn. (You can see the pre-blocking photos here if you want to compare!) It's fits beautifully, not too loose but not to tight :) I can definitely see myself making another! But for now, I'm working on the matching gloves :) I've got the thumb and flip top to do on the first one and then the first glove is finished! I had to get a longer cable so I could magic loop the mitten, hence why the top photo is taken in the yarn shop! I had to take it to show it off :) I may also have bought more yarn while I was there. . .
Oh and the details! The pattern is the Snapdragon tam by Ysolda Teague, in the book Whimsical Little Knits 2. The yarn is Rico Essentials merino DK, I used a ball and a half. Oh, and I knitted it 4mm circular needles.
The plan for today is to have a quick tidy and a clean, then to do some sewing! Dom called me last night and it really cheered me up, so I actually feel like doing something other than sitting around moping and knitting all day :) Plus he'll be home soon!! Wooo! :D
So I should have a sewing update for you soon. Yay!
