I’ve mentioned before that blocking is not my favorite part of knitting…
…but it is an important part of finishing! It’s been said that blocking is to knitting like ironing is to sewing, and I firmly believe that to be true!
In order for your knitting to look its best, a good blocking is an absolute necessity.
So I recently scrubbed my bathtub good and clean and blocked a couple of large shawls that I had finished knitting a while ago but hadn’t forced myself to block yet!
It was totally worth it because the stitches evened out and opened up, allowing the stitch patterns to be fully seen and appreciated!
I always dread blocking, but I’m always so glad that I made myself do it after I’m done!
How do you feel/what do you think about blocking? Do you always do it? Never do it? Sometimes do it? Love it? Strongly dislike it?
