Blocking Central Park

All the main bits and pieces are done for the Central Park Hoodie… so I’m just blocking the pieces before I seam the shoulders and pick up for the hood.

Two front pieces, blocking
Second sleeve doesn't fit on the blocking board
Too bad, the blocking board doesn’t fit all the pieces. We have to go with the towel-on-carpet method of blocking.

Now, I have to decide on buttons or zipper for the closure… I’m leaning towards buttons.

    Yes, definitely buttons, it’ll look so nice, can’t wait to see it finished. It’s so good to see you blocking something.

    Very pretty – love the color. I like buttons because there’s just something about a zipper in hand knits – I’m just not crazy about it. But, I’m sure either option will look great.

    I agree with Carin and Stephanie, BUTTONS.

    Knitting is soft and supple – zippers are not.

    I’m entranced by the colour! I know that buttons make a more handmade statement, but I have trouble getting a fit that doesn’t gape. The zipper is kinder in that fashion.
