Wet blocking

Wet blocking is an excellent way to soften yarn after you've knit it, even if you don't want to do any reshaping.

It is also an excellent way to stretch a garment. By rather a lot.

And now if you will excuse me, I have to go rip out The Perfect Winter Hat for the third time. Even though it is raining snow today, which is most definitely not of the Perfect Winter variety, and after this I won't need a winter hat of any quality for many months. Because I am persistent and will prevail! (and also the hat only takes a day to knit, especially now that I could recite the pattern in my sleep and will be making it with waaaaay fewer stitches.)
