TKGA Level 1 Swatch Blocking – Part 1

Yesterday was the time to start blocking some of those TKGA swatches I've been knitting. I haven't finished all the swatches, but I've done over half and didn't want to leave all that pinning out to the last minute. It's been a lot of work so far, but worth it in terms of making me look closely at my knitting and figuring out better ways to do things.

I used the standard wool blocking technique: soak in some warm water with a little shampoo for 20-30 minutes, rinse in warm water, squeeze out gently, wrap in a towel, pin out on a towel placed on one of those interlocking foam boards, leave until dry. This evening I get to weave in some yarn tails. Maybe I'll do some more photos of the results once that's done.

    Wow! That’s a lot of swatches you’ve got done already. I only saw one of them when you were working on it. That’s impressive!
