This blue one is Darcy's GW - she knit it in Cascade 220, so its much closer to the intended size of the wrap - that's why it got its own stretch of blocking mats off in the corner (this one is 84" x 19") The yarn blocks out so well, and the texture of the fabric is just amazing! The little purple guy is Darcy's creation as well - but you'll have to watch her blog if you want more info about him! :)

For the last couple of months, Darcy and I have been knitting Jared Flood's Guernsey Wrap, as part of a Ravelry Knit-along. We finished them this past week, so of course it was time to block them out. Blocking is never a great one-person job, so we decided to make a deal: the use 46 square feet of my real estate and (very few) blocking mats in exchange for Darcy's extra mats, blocking wires, t-pins, and lessons on how to block 'properly' (there is no one way to do this...). Overall, I think I got the better end of the deal, especially since I'm pretty much incapable of crawling around on the floor just now!!
