scrunched up


It doesn't look like much, does it? That's the first ball of Cascade 220 superwash knitted up into my blanket. The edges are curling and the lace pattern is all scrunched up, but I have to believe it will look alright once it's washed. It will, won't it?

To reassure myself I've gone back to Ravelry and re-read all those comments about how much the yarn relaxed in the first washing. That should work in my favour, shouldn't it?

Deep breath ... and carry on. It'll be just fine, I'm sure.

It will look fine once it's washed and stretched. It looks nice even scrunched up.

Wow, those needles are smokin',I can't believe how much , you've accomplished already ! Lace always needs a good blocking to bring out the beauty of the knitting . It will be absolutely beautiful , have no fear ....
