Smug, so very very smug

Public Service Announcement: Your swatch doesn’t count if you don’t block it.

Remember the photo of the swatch I showed you last time?   Take a look at it after a little soak!

DSC_4978Totally different beast (with a whole stitch per inch difference in gauge).  If I’d started the project without blocking the swatch, the finished project would have been way way way too big.  I also feel like blocking the swatch helped me decide which color to go with (which was proving unreasonably challenging when I was just staring at the yarn).

DSC_4987Tantrum it is.  But don’t feel bad if you love the Molten Cool.  I have a suspicion you’ll be seeing more of it around here at some point.  It really is too pretty not to use for something!
