and now to block the blocks..

for what seems like an eternity, and probably is, I have been knitting these....

a trip in the car...a child's football game.....a spare moment between other craft adventures...the bamboo sticks have been clicking...
i have taught myself lots of new stitches...i have ripped out many a row.....
its been fun learning new techniques knowing its only a quick knit and i wont have to battle on for months with a stitch pattern i don't like....most of them i love...i have no favourite....
now to block them and start binding them together.......i cant wait to wrap myself up in all that 100% woolen love...

how fantastic!
this is going to be sensational.
at least you won't 'need' to finish all that seaming for another 6 or 9 months now... :)

These are just beautiful! I can't wait to see the finished project. I especially love the square that looks like it's gathered; what a lovely texture!
