I have a question about blocking.

I'm trying to block the back piece of a sweater. It's a 100% wool yarn. After soaking it in lukewarm soapy water, rinsing, and squeezing as much water out of it, I lay it out on a towel.

Teddy

So this little guy was worked up while avoiding the freezes in south Georgia. Kinda cute, kinda reminds me of an old fashioned farm toy. Now, if I could only knit a tractor....

Just finished new rug

Here's a rug I just finished. I found the pattern in book of knitting in the round patterns. It was rather mindless, but that's what I wanted.
