SOAK to the rescue

Here is the sleeve of a new sweater I've been working on.  The yarn I used was two strands of different greys.  They weren't as soft as I would have liked, but it was such a pretty pattern in this yarn.  So, SOAK to the rescue.  I "soaked" the sleeves and the back/fronts (worked as one piece) for several days.  I drained the excess water out of the sleeves and rolled them in towels.  Then I pinned them out on my blocking grid.  When they're dry, I'll block the remaining piece.  Then I just have to sew in the sleeves and work the ribbing around the neck edge.  I'll put a picture up of the sweater when it's finished.
