The magic of blocking

I'm neither the first nor last to blog about this little bit of knitter's magic.

Fresh off the needles, before blocking...

After a nice evening's blocking...

Yarn: Rainy Days and Wooly Dogs Belladonna Gothing (BFL) in Tainted Love
Pattern: Gail aka Nightsong (Rav link, must sign in to see)
Needles: size 7

Those photos were taken today. Friday was sunny and warm. Saturday was dreary but temperate, until it rained. This morning, we awoke to snow.

Gorgeous! And how does freezing work into the blocking process?

Got to love your local weather ... I remember it snowed on our university graduation day, the last weekend of April.

Lovely! Blocking is a lot of work but the payoff is soooo worth it!
