Proof of the finishitis

Calorimetry #2Calorimetry #3

Dulcie's silk hatReserved sign at Panera

Here’s the other 2 calorimetries that I finished, still sans wooden bead for the tie part, and the silk hat that is so very lovely.  I still can’t quite figure out how to block it without getting lines on the side where I’d be folding it in half.  I really don’t want to buy a balloon, but I don’t know how to do this.  Maybe a towel rolled up or something?

And the reserved sign at Panera.  We’re growing.  One lady asked last week if they could push 2 tables together for us and put a sign on it or something so no one else would sit there.  Cause, you know, we can’t sit somewhere else.  Cool, huh?

    The Calorimetries remind me of eyes… Maybe eyes from a modern art perspective. Still, they’re very pretty – I especially like the top one (natural navy?).

    As for hat blocking, my mom has a wooden head form. She just puts the hats on it and then steams them. I lack a wooden head, so I steam mine flat, but in sections so that I don’t steam the folds and end up with creases. For a lace hat, I’d probably wet block it on a towel.

    What about a deep bowl? My mom used bowls to starch crocheted lace “bowls” and such, maybe that would work with wet blocking for a hat?
