Blocking

I finished the knitting of my Clapotis (pronounced Clap-Oh-Tee).

It has been sitting in the basket waiting patiently for my to block it so I can wear it.

Today I found some coated stainless steel wire for 1.40 euro each (bargain! proper "knitting wires", I priced at 30 pounds today on google)


You will have to excuse the colour of the towl peeping through the knitting, it's the largest towel I own!

Now I am waiting impatiently for it to dry....I love it!! :)
