Well, I was procrastinating earlier this afternoon (and am still doing so right now), so I decided to finish knitting up the sleeve to my short-sleeved mohair-stripe sweater. I don't have a picture because it doesn't look all that different from the other sleeve, tee hee. =P Anyway, the sweater is ready for blocking before I have to do the neckline and sew it up together, but I probably won't get to it until I get back from Toronto.

So I was checking the Air Canada website, and apparently knitting needles are not allowed on their planes. Boo. I am digging around for a super-mindless project to work on while in Toronto, not that I'll have much time to do much knitting, but maybe a really really easy novelty-yarn scarf would be good. Or another headscarf, since I gave the first one to my sister.

It really sucks that you can't bring knitting needles on to Air Canada flights. Of all the times, that's when I'd want to knit the most!

I think you should go with a headscarf. Those are always fun. Oh, and please let me know how you did your blocking when you get to it. That's still something that is a bit of a mystery to me.

I'm not sure how I want to do the blocking yet, which is why I haven't really discussed it. I may do it by using a spray bottle to dampen the sweater pieces instead of totally dunking the whole thing in water since that makes me a little nervous, and plus that would allow me to pin it out the way I want before it gets all limp and wet and stretchy. Not entirely sure yet,though. That's the way I blocked a scarf I made to get rid of the stockinette curl, but my experience with blocking is pretty much limited to that one time. I will definitely take pictures and let you know how it works (or doesn't work) when I get to it, though!
