Blocking Weekend

I'm finally able to get some finished knitting and crocheted projects blocked this weekend.  With the ceiling fan on everything is drying very fast.

Last night I blocked my crocheted Blocks Curtain.  This is a little curtain that I made for the window on our front door.  In the summer afternoons the sun shines right in this little window and practically blinds you.

Pattern: Blocks Curtain by Bernat Design Studio
Yarn: Lion Brand Crochet Cotton Size 10
Color: Ecru
Hook: B (2.25mm)
Mods: Made it eight blocks wide instead of six.  Crocheted a sleeve instead of tabs. Did 1 row of dc, 5 rows of 1 tc, ch2, 1 row of dc

This year I also participated in my first mystery KAL.  It was fun to do, but drove me bats waiting for the clues to come out since I wanted to finish it and see the final product.

Pattern: Spriteling by Alice Yu
Yarn: Pagewood Farm Denali Hand Dyed Sock Yarn
Color: Mississippi Mud
Hook: US7 (4.5mm)
