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

4:54 PM Posted In , , Edit This 0 Comments »
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!
