BACK & FRONTS, on the blocking board!
My FRONTS and BACK are washed, rinsed, patted dry, and on the blocking board and will remain there til bone dry. My sweater is already improving in appearance and "feel". The stitches are blooming nicely! And the yarn already feels softer, even while wet!

Here is a good example of how handy dandy edge stitches are! See how easily you can push/thread the blocking wire through the edge stitches?


Here is a photo of the blocking wire, threaded through all the edge stitches, as seen from the wrong side up.


Blocking wires are holding the straightaways in place, with minimal pinning.
