On the Blocking Mats: Baby Cardigan

baby cardi blocking

The Baby Cardigan is finally blocking!  After soaking these babies in Perwoll for 20 min, I gently rinsed with cool water and then pinned them to blocking specs!  They smell divine!!  I had to make adjustments for the sleeve blocking because I made the sleeves longer (on purpose) so they could be rolled.  Some of the pics I've seen with the sleeves made to specs, show the sleeves to be a little short.  So I made my sleeves longer.

Now I just need to wait patiently for a day or two until everything is dried sufficiently and sew the pieces together.  Then I get to work on the trim work and the buttons!!  YAY!  I guess I should go buy some buttons, eh?
