What a difference a blocking makes!!! I spent the last two days sewing up the Reynolds cardigan I made with a mystery fleece that Judy and I bought from the NH Sheep and Wool Festival a couple of years ago. You know how we agonize over our sweater making:
Did I spin enough yarn?
Should I have made the larger size?
Should I sew the seams using a backstitch or do the mattress stitch?
Did I use the best yarn for this pattern?
Am I sewing in too many ends into a particular seam?
Will I like the sweater enough to wear it?
Well..................I want to report that I think I'm happy with the sweater. The sweater is drying as I write this post. It 's not too small DD; looks like mama can wear this baby!
