Yesterday I was lucky enough to have the afternoon to myself in the quiet of Home. After traveling last week and being sick this week, such silence and space was exactly what I needed. This allowed me an uninterrupted stretch of time in which I could catch up on podcasts and finish the knitting of my Juliet. I only had a few rows left, so it really took no time at all. Then I set to work on all the little things that have to happen before a garment is really Finished: weaving in ends, soaking, blocking, and choosing buttons.
Remember, this yarn isn’t 100% wool, so I’m not sure what the results of my blocking efforts will be. But I decided to go through the process, because I need a little more give in the bust area. My fingers are crossed that when it is dry, the rigorous blocking will hold. In the meantime, what should I do about buttons?
