Blocking Motif 9

The motif turned out beautifully.  We addressed cables again and how to work cables without a cable needle.  Once your brain clicks, the technique becomes second-nature, and it is actually quite freeing to work cables without the fuss of a third needle.  I never touched a cable needle for this entire piece.

When it came time to block my work, the reverse stockinette required lots of pins to get a nice flat border.  Don't be shy when you block yours; I promise it won't feel the pricks.
