Almost at the finish line

The knitting is done, the buttons have been bought (and what a mission that was, let me tell you!), and now the seaming,sweing on buttons, and blocking are at hand.

I really, really hate the whole seaming thing. I know, it's only two sleeves, and it's my fault since I was too chicken to knit them in the round. But I still hate the seaming.

I'm not a big fan of blocking, either. The results are always worth the effort, but the smell of wet wool and the stress of trying to get the garment in the correct shape make a mess of me.

My Forecast definitely needs a bit of blocking, because it is quite... sproingy. And I guess a few days of a woolly-smelling apartment is a small price to pay for what will hopefully be a lovely warm garment. The weather has turned quite cold, so it will certainly be good timing!
