Almost ready to sew


I just realized I never posted here! Totally forgot.
Well, I finished knitting the body and sleeves after some minor gauge problems.
And finally figured out the applied I-cord!
But I'm wondering if I need to block it. It has the right measurments without blocking and the stitches look fine. Plus I don't have the room to wet block it anyway and I guess it would take atleast two days to dry. Hints and tips appreciated!

  • I love the color!

    Blocking it will temporarily take the curl out of the stockinette, which will make it much easier to seam. I think it's worth the time and effort, personally. If you don't have the space to pin it out, you could try steaming it with an iron. Just make sure to only steam it, and not actually press it.
