Blocking is an exercise in patience. I feel like I keep checking my cardigan to make sure it's dry... and it's still not.
I have to admit that blocking makes me a little bit nervous. I know that it can make your garment look so much better, but... still. I always worry something unforeseen will go wrong and all those hours will be wasted.
But nothing went wrong. In fact, aside from the incredibly long time it's taking to dry, all is good. I've knit a few baby and toddler sweaters before, but this is the first adult sized sweater I've finished. I'm feeling pretty good about it - and can't wait for it to dry to actually put it on.
