Fairy Yarn-mothers

Today I got a package of assorted acrylic-y goodness in the form of a care package from Damned Soles. I am lucky enough to receive the occasional knitterly package by complete surprise from someone who knows me well enough to know my day will be made by this kind of thing.

And a picture of the Queen Anne’s Lace scarf blocking, that took a good hour and a bit to pin out… gah. Also note – camping “flooring mats” from K-mart make excellent backings for blockings.

Mmmm. Steamy. For an excellent article on why acrylic should be blocked and the best way to go about it, visit Bead Knitter Рa truly excellent post.

 

And a bonus for those who are paying attention, my budding photographer’s latest – an art shot of my Valentine’s day flowers.
