Time to Block

All the pieces for the Aztec Plaid vest are finished.  Getting it pinned down takes so long when there are so many color changes.  Having the blocking wires helped, but I wish that I had more T-pins.  They are better for multicolored garments.  I managed to get it to the proper dimensions and wetted it down.  With the air conditioning running, they were dry in less than twenty-four hours.  Now, I have to weave in all the ends and sew the shoulder seams.  Some of my friends procrastinate at weaving in the ends, but not me.  It means the garment is almost finished and I’ll be starting something new soon.  It never ends.

I thought I should mention that I don’t pin down the borders or bands.

    actually, I enjoy weaving in the ends and finishing it means that “it almost done, like the end of the day when you take a moment to relax with simple work and a beverage (coffee_)
