blocking | christmas in july.


Despite having knit this sweater at the end of the summer (getting ahead on Christmas gifts!), I finally got around to wet blocking it this past weekend.

Isn’t it a beauty? Tanis Lavallee has the best patterns; easy to follow, cool techniques, and beautiful end results.

The Christmas in July sweater was no exception. I absolutely want to cast on another one. This version is for my 4 year old nephew (I envision it as one of his go-to ski sweaters when he hits the slopes this winter) and now I want to make one for his little brother and myself.

Endless color combinations. Have you knit one? If not, you should. What’s more, this version I did was a complete stash buster. If you have odds and ends of mostly used sock yarn and the like, this is the perfect project to eat away at those bits.

Finished snaps, soon.
