Spice

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Paprika Link to website or photo www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/paprika-2 What are you most proud of? How 'brave' I was for steam blocking it before finishing it off with the button. Lots of people say acrylic blocking is a no-no. Using a hand held clothing steamer worked like a charm for me - new lesson learned. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be intimidated! If you think about the project in sections rather than as a whole, it's much more manageable. It's not really that complicated once you do the pattern for each section once or twice. Plus it's great cable practice!
