Some mistakes can't be blocked out.
I was thinking that it was just a little too small, and that I could block it out. Now that it's finished, I realize I have a kid's size hat.
It's about six inches across when it's laying flat like this, before blocking. I'm wondering if this will fit one of the kids on my Christmas list. If not, I'll donate it to charity.
It's hard to tell in the picture, but the yarn bled just a little bit when I washed it. This is Cascade 220 Superwash, so I didn't have to hand wash it. I was a little surprised, but hopefully that's all the bleeding that will happen. I'm starting to learn most yarns bleed a little.
I'm blocking it on a can of iced tea mix with some washcloths over it. Other than the overall size, it's turning out pretty good.
After finishing and blocking Center Square, I cast on my next gift for the Ravelympics Gift Knits Pentathlon. This is the Purl Ridge Moebius from A Treasury of Magical Knitting by Cat Bordhi.
This is the Cat Bordhi's famous Moebius Cast On. in progress.
Now I'm completely cast on. (This video shows the next step.)
And here I am one round in. The moebius will grow between the two needles. It truly is "magical knitting."
