Anise blocked

After a nice long soak in a soapy sink, Anise is now taking up the entire dining room table, pinned out to spec and beginning to dry.

I tried something a little different this time in blocking. I pinned out the sweater back, and then laid the two fronts on top of it. That way I was able to make sure they would have the same dimensions as the back. The fronts were then laid back, but still pinned to the shoulders and sides. (That's why only one sleeve is really visible, the other is hiding under the right front.)

Anyhoo, it will take a while for them to dry sufficiently for seaming. The collar gets knitted next, still have to find the buttons I want to use.
