The Magic of Blocking

Hi there dear readers I have a nice surprise for you today.  You know how I love to block my crochet work (my knitting gets felted, cause well you know me and knitting). My friend, the talented Patty Lyons, is going to be presenting a live Webinar “Fantastic Finish: Blocking Techniques in Knitting”, Tuesday, April 8th at 1:00 pm, EST (If you can’t attend live, register and download it later!).

As Patty says “Why spend all that time stitching a garment, only to stop short of making it look great! Blocking is an essential part of finishing your garment off perfectly. Blocking evens out your stitches, sets your size, and in some cases can even mask your mistakes.”

Don’t be put off by the name, this class is very applicable to crochet fabric as well. You can find out more information on the webinar thru this link: Fantastic Finish Webinar.
