I divided the body at the arm holes ages ago, but I haven’t made much progress beyond that. The shaping got a lot more complicated, and I was totally fried from work and moving. Now that I’ve finished up my job and I have more time on my hands I want to finish Serrano before it gets too cold to wear it.
Back when I first started this project I decided that since my gauge was a bit small, I should make the next size up and just not block it to the full measurements. I’ve been worried this whole time that it might have been a mistake, that the lace would open up the moment it got wet and be way too big. Today I couldn’t handle the suspense anymore, and I got it wet to see what would happen.
It will fit! I stretched it into shape, and it went to 42 inches. Just what I had planned! Hooray! Now that I have confirmation that it will fit, I am even more excited to get back to work.
I also love what the blocking has done to the texture. I’m so excited!
