|Super rolly edges. When worn, it basically rolls up into a tube. Oops. Guess it's time to try out blocking.|
Doesn't it look delicious?
|Attempt at blocking. Washed in mesh laundry bag in machine on cold delicate cycle. Using clothespins to keep edges from rolling as it dries.|
|The "knit" (right) side.|
|The "purl" (reverse) side.|
|Blocking definitely helped it unroll a little. Perhaps when not worn, it'll have to be sit under ceramic lasagna pans....|
|Cozy. Love the look of it looped around twice!|
