It's Magic

Pure and simple, blocking is magic!

The Babies and Bears Sweater for Grownups, before blocking first, then after blocking, for each view.

I didn't get the exact row gauge in the garter stitch portion that I was supposed to. It was close, and in retrospect (hind sight is always 20/20 they say) I would have chosen the #10 needle instead of the #9. But it's wool, and all was OK.

Come to think of it, wool is a bit magical, isn't it?

Very nice sweater! Isn't that neat how it looks different before and after blocking? :-)

Your sweater is FANTASTIC! Can't wait to see the next one.

I heart blocking. It has saved me from the NoSwatch Monster many a time.

Sandra! I saw your post on the yarn harlot's blog about the event in NYC. I live in NY and I think I can help you out. Email me (Lizhonig@aol.com) and we'll discuss.

Beautiful sweater by the way!
