Giving the knitting a bath

Newer Older

I am participating in something called "The Knitting Olympics" which you can read about here, if you're interested. My goal -- the thing that'll earn me a gold medal -- is to finish six sweaters that I have in various states of unfinish, some of them have been that way for a very long time. This is a sweater for one of my daughters, taking a soak before I pin it out to measurements (also known as "blocking"). I have a favorite, old stoneware bowl for soaking my knits.

    Soaking woollens never looked so good before. Great lighting.
