Very nice. I am just finishing my first block. Is your yarn acrylic? I was wondering how to block it. I was thinking of steam blocking it.

Acrylic yes. You can block the same as wool. I use those interlocking foam floor tiles to and protect the table. Give the knitting a good swish with warm water and a drop of dish detergent. Sqeeze water out by placing wet project on a large towel and roll it up. Leave it for a few minutes to let the towel absorb most of the water. Place it on the foam tiles and stretch it out to make it square and pin it down to finish drying the rest of the way. I got those foam tiles at the $ store and Walmart has big ones.

Thanks Patti. It's very interesting playing with colours isn't it!!! It seems that anything goes.

Judy it seems that any combination of colors are great together from this range. But I really like what you've chosen. My range isn't great as I'm in England and they don't stock Lion as a rule and I'll have to get it from Norway I think.

I'm from the UK and you can get it online, but with a limited choice of colours. Deramores sell it, also Love Knitting and a few more. You can pick up odd balls on eBay sometimes, I don't think it matters if the dye lot is different as the colours are mostly separated, and even if they're not, a man running for his life wouldn't notice a slight change!!
