Pre-Wash and Block Photos

8:36 AM Posted In , , , , Edit This 5 Comments »
All squares are finished and the ends woven in. I took a few photos to show the general layout of how the squares will be put together. These photos are the before washing and blocking but I was just excited and wanted to show how they looked! So now their off to the washing machine and I've got to find a way to block all 30 squares (at one time hopefully). Then it's onto sewing them together and putting on the border!




Another Update for the Rich Mitered Crochet Throw

Finally! The squares are all done!! Since it is so late in the evening, 8:00 pm EST, they will be throwed in the washing machine tomorrow for a good cleaning and then onto blocking!

For this project I'm going to make 1 extra square. I want to kill the acrylic on this one to see how it looks and if the stitches still stand out pretty. RH Super Saver will soften up after washing, but I don't want to wait for that to happen. When you kill acrylic, it softens up beautifully and drapes great! Since its already been pretty chilly here lately I want to be able to snuggle up in my throw as soon as it's completed!

Hopefully tomorrow I can get 2 pics posted. 1 as-is and the other 'killed'. LOL That sounds so evil!

Hope everybody is having a great evening! Happy crafting!
