The Grasshopper Says I Must Block

I don’t always block things the minute I’m done knitting them.  If there’s no urgency to the situation, I might leave said things sitting around for months.  If I can wear it at that moment, blocking is urgent.  If not, well, why worry about it?  Heavy wool things and shawls aren’t of much use during the summer months, so I’ve been making a pile of them in my knitting room.

These guys are starting to show up in greater numbers on our morning walks, however:

They provide good chase targets for Dr. Evil, and also herald the coming of fall.  Better get to blocking.

Blocking Rabbit Tracks

First up is Rabbit Tracks.  It’s long enough that it takes up most of the room, so except for one little thing which I can’t show you at the moment, this is the only thing currently on the blocking mats.

Now that I’m having a good look at it again, I can’t wait for it to be dry so that I can sew on the special goodies I bought for the ends.  Fall’s coming!  Whee!

    Lovely rabbit tracks…although wouldn’t rabbit tracks have a few rows of rabbit turds right after them? The ones I see in the snow always to. 😉
