This is my finished and steam blocked Critron (crocheted version of Citron). It was crocheted with 920 yds of Noro Sekku (lace wt) and all in single crochets! I was a little disappointed with the way it turned out after steam blocking. Of course, this was my first attempt at steam blocking.. So I decided to wet block and pin:
You can see after pinning, it opened up quite a bit. However, my ruched rows are barely visible after pinning. I hope that they scrunch back after taking the pins out. I've seen many knitters write that they blocked their Citrons within an inch of it's life, so I sincerely hope that's the case. If not, I'll re-wet and block much less aggressively.
This is my first completed project of 2012! Now to finish the other 20 things I've got on the needles/hook. ;p
