I wish I could take credit for the fabulous blocking idea but I can't. I read about it one night when blog surfing. Some amazingly clever knitter came up with the idea of blocking on these foam interlocking baby mat squares. Her logic was that one can create the approximate size and shape required for each project and they come apart for easy storage. I discovered an added benefit. The squares create a grid making the pinning easy peasy. The shawl above is pinned out in a perfect triangle. How cool is that?
I purchased the foam squares in the toy section of Dollarama. I love these things with a passionate love.
This shawl is the most intricate thing I have ever knit and I'm so damn proud of it! Sadly, the yarn is a bit itchy so wearing it with bare shoulders is pretty much out of the question. However, I do adore the colours. This morning, I took advantage of some meager sunlight to shoot this baby in the garden.
