I am blogging right now because it seemed like a bad idea, even to me, to stand in front of the little foreign washing machine for 39 minutes. That is not going to get me anywhere. (Back with you in a minute–just going to check. –OK, 28 minutes left.)
Today is Blocking Day!
Here we see a corner, resplendent in applied i-cord. (No staples, duct tape, or cream cheese was used in the production of this blanket.)
Here we see a guaranteed unposed, mohair-loving, seat-stealing dog who does not insist on blocking.
Here we see what the little foreign washing machine saw.
Over in the sidebar: a handy Rav button showing how many projects are open in Ravelry users’ notebooks. Still plenty of time to upload a photo and enter the contest. There is also a handy Buy Now button, for those who haven’t Bought Yet.
Last night we hit the 2000-purchases mark for the Mitered Crosses Blanket–for Japan. So far we’ve sent a total of $9000.00 to Mercy Corps for Japan relief, and are homing in on 10 grand, one click of the Buy Now button at a time. Kind of unbelievable! Thank you, knitters!
Note to New Yorkers: if you have an idea for a photo shoot location for this item, please send my way!
And now, back to my washing machine vigil.
