Summertime, and the blocking is easy
I’m so jealous of those of you who live in dry climates. In the deep woods of the Pacific Northwest, there are only two months out of the year when you can wash and dry wool things in any reasonable amount of time: July and August.
I washed this scarf this morning, and it was fully dry within four hours. Four hours! In any other month of the year, the scarf would take at least two days to dry.
You can see what I mean about taking pictures in this sunlight, though. Too harsh! Too bright! Too… much!
This is a scarf I knit last year, returning home for a good washing. Not ever non-knitter feels up to the challenge of washing a large hand-knit, but I’m happy to do it.
Apropos of nothing, if you have been wanting to watch Hannibal, here you go. I have gone a little bit (as in, completely) nutty over the show, but fair warning: it is not for everyone.
