Ok still chugging along here. I’d say I’m about halfway done. I have some status photos here. Although, it’s really hard to see what this will look like since it’s going to need blocked badly. So, here’s the pre-blocked and very lumpy halfway through project. Heh
I kinda barely stretched it a little here so you get the idea. Although not really. It'll look a lot smoother and nicer once it's blocked. I hope....
On the theatre front; my next show is up and running. Opening night was Saturday, and it felt good. The one review was kinda…. Not really a review. He didn’t seem to like it, but didn’t have anything to say about it at all. I’m having some fun with this show; it’s been awhile since I’ve done something dramatic, and I’m loving it again. Well 1 down, 3 more shows to go.

the shawl looks great, though!!
Not a dumb question at all!!!! I only jsut learned about it recently, and this will be my first time. Us self-taught folk don't usually know these tricks.ReplyDelete
You know how sometimes a finished project looks kinda lumpy and doesn't lay right? Blocking more or reshapes it to give it a nice polished look. You basically stretch out your project and pin it to something (usually a block of wood, hence "blocking") and steam the hell out of it.

Google it, it's friggin fascinating!
