Here is the Beech Leaf vest, blocking at last!
It looks a little wonky, because I knit in some bust shaping and of course that means the pieces aren't really flat. Also I spun the pieces out in the washing machine which left some wrinkles. If they don't disappear as it dries I will have to steam them, and I may need to steam the bust darts over a tailor's ham. But the pieces match each other in length and width and the scallops are pinned out to the same dimensions. I can't wait to seam it up!
And I know it's silly to be so impatient when I have been knitting this for a year, but look:
Do you think it will be dry by the time the kids have gone to sleep?
