The owner of my local knitting store told me I need to submerge my lace scarf before putting blocking wires in. The knit picks video on lace blocking says the same. Not to submerge long and only in tepid water. Then it says to roll in towell till damp before putting the wires in.
The instructions that come w/ the wires say to insert wires and then steam the piece(s).
I kind of like the idea of submerging the wool and towelling it. What do you think is best? This is a lace scarf and I need to stretch it both to better display the lace pattern but also to bring to required dimension in length (not so much in width).
Thanks so much.
