Blocking the Beast

Well, I finally stopped procrastinating and blocked the beast. I gave Lady Eleanor a good soaking in Euclan in the kitchen sink and popped her in the washer for a good spin. That much wet wool weighs a ton.


Just for this event I invested in blocking wires. It was a good thing. This would have taken every pin in my possession. I think this incredibly tedious task would have gone even better if both cats had not found it so fascinating.
Now onto the fringing! There is hope too that my first Lady E. will now get finished...
