A finished (yet unblocked) item!I just wrote a big, long entry about this cutie-pie bunting I made for my almost-born nephew, when Blogger refused to publish it! Grrr. So, here's a summary of what you would have read if all went as planned:
This is the Dale of Norway bunting I made for nephew #3.
I love it, and love all of the details, like the little row of red at the turning row for the seatbelt flaps. What I don't love has nothing to do with the pattern, and everything to do with my wonky knitting--the flaps aren't even remotely rectangular, and I don't know why! Here's the wonky flap on the front:
And here's the cute little turn-row:
The cuffs are even turned in so there aren't any stray ends hanging loose for little fingers to catch. So cute! So well done!
So, my question is how to block the offending little flaps into being square/rectangular, considering the yarn is superwash wool. The pattern recommends using steam, which I've never done. Any suggestions? Comments? The baby's due any day, people--I need to get this project blocked! How?!?!?
