My blocking wires arrived safely in the mail and I finished my Martini Wrap just in time to pick up Olive from the airport. While she was snoozing, I blocked out the wrap.
I did a Google search on how to block with blocking wires and a post from the Yarn Harlot came up and she said that if her garment is too big to block on blocking mats, she just uses her bed and a fan to speed up the process. Totally worked!
I really did block it just like the advice that Christina and Olive gave me. I pulled it so that the stitches would really open and that I would get the little points like the pattern had. However, my yarn just didn’t stretch like the pattern’s recommended yarn. But that’s ok because to me the yarn that I bought was a better quality than the recommended one. I am really happy with the results.
Now for the weather report for Gin’s graduation, the occasion that I made this wrap to wear to … possibility of rain. Oh well … what can you do???
