Blocking - Spannen
I used this week knitting, whatiffing and watching TV. I had a cold and more time to knit because it wasn't very demanding. While I knitted I thought about my Whatif-piece story too.
This vest is the shape of pullover/poncho/vest I'm always wearing because it is easy to put on on top of anything when I enter my cold studio, it doesn't has long sleeves that get into everything and it warms very much because of the air layers between the loose clothing I also wear.
I got the idea of all these shapes from this picture, and I intend to knit most of them, using some frames as a background for embellished shapes:
The yellow surfaces on my knitted pieces are the ones which are going to be embellished. They are not real ponchos because I sew the side seams up to the arm holes. It will look similarly to my Frida vest.
