Blocking is a critical step in the finishing process for hand knits, and is all too often ignored or skipped. It’s incredibly easy, and the value it provides is immense, taking an item from complete to truly, beautifully finished. This session will demystify the process, breaking it down by both fibre and project type. Along the way, we'll also talk about fibre care: safely and easily washing handknits - when you can use the machine and when you should handwash (or not wash at all). We'll also talk about moth prevention, and safe yarn and garment storage.
