Finished it! I finished my surfer tee last night and couldn’t be happier with it.
Mazie took this pic of me trying it on:
After that, the sweater’s still damp, moldable, and block able, but not so wet that it takes days to dry. I like to try it on at this point to see if I need to do anything special while blocking, like stretch the length or width.
I didn’t add the kangaroo pocket to mine, and I leave it up to you to decide if you want one on yours. I think it’s really cute with the pocket, but the look is a bit slimmer without.
I still need to weave in my ends. Usually I weave in ends before blocking, but I was too excited to see this one on!
Here it is blocking in the sun:
I’m in love with these rusty colors. Probably because I’m a redhead., I just love the array of reddish browns and deep oranges.
To think that I dyed this in my crockpot! So amazing.
One thing to keep in mind after finishing a knit:
blocking will sometimes open up the yarn and change your gauge. Think about this before judging your FO for size and fit. Block to gauge and THEN judge! :)
