It's my Mondo Cable Cardi with a close up of the 'mondo cable'. And it's also my 'new' method of blocking.

Saturday, Deb Gemmell's sample sweaters looked so well blocked, I asked her about her favourite method.
Deb pins out the sweater and lays a damp towel over the garment.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained, I am trying it with Mondo. Without a detailed explanation from Deb, I am only guessing that she didn't leave the towel on top the sweater until dry. It would be weeks before it dried out. This towel went on this morning and came off late this afternoon. I'll let you know how it works.
