Banff Blocked

I finally blocked Banff. It's pinned and sitting in the kitchen. I will begin seaming tomorrow. I fear it will take me a long, long time. This is only my second sweater and the first one was knit in the round so no seams.

I crept through the grocery store, tape measure in hand, trying to find something to block my BOC on. I know some people use coffee cans but they are only 19" around. Hello! My head's just over 22! I'm going to try using the same container I blocked the last one on but do things a little differently.

I started Elle tonight. I finished the base and have completed one and a half rows in pattern. This will be a long-term project, I suspect. It's my first fair isle and I'm sloooooooooooooooooooow.

I'll have photos of everything tomorrow. I promise!
