Whiskers On Wednesday And Off The Needles


Whiskers On Wednesday:


Bella....who REALLY enjoys her naps to the fullest extent!!





FINALLY.....Off the needles and blocking...



The Bellini Shawl, knit with 3 skeins of Knitpicks Gloss Fingering Weight Yarn, 70% Merino, 30% Silk. This is a gift knit....I doubt I will knit this pattern again, although mindless, I have discovered that I do NOT like the whole blocking process!! UGH!!






AND.....








UPDATED Mystery Knitting!!! Coming right along......I would guestimate this project is 80-85% finished!!!







But I fear that "finishing" is sort of like "blocking".....I don't like it!!!! Sort of like gauge swatching!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!

Hmm, that looks like Heidi-maybe upside down, she does? Pretty shawl.

I can't believe you don't like blocking! It must be your set-up. You need a foam board you can sit on your table and then move to a spare room, you wouldn't have to crouch down on the floor then.

Can't wait to see your finished secret project!

Crouching on the floor, kitties thinking I am there to play with them and having to shoo Heidi away from pulling the pins out...I will DEFINITELY be researching these foam boards!!! THANKS for the tip!!

Heidi looks so cute in her bed!

The shawl looks great, btw. I'm not a big fan of blocking either, but it's a necessary evil.

Hooray for naps! I've never minded the blocking itself..it's the waiting for it to dry that annoys me.

Ahh, cat naps.
Like you, I hate blocking. It's especially hard with four cats!

Wish I could get as relaxed as Bella!

She looks oh so comfortable too!

I always have lots of helpers when I block.
