Blocking your work

Also, for large pieces with straight edges, there are blocking wires. You weave them through an edge and pin them in place along the length. Saves time and looks very neat. Great for extreme blocking of lace items.

I probably wouldn’t block smaller items either like gloves and socks. I want to have a go at socks for Xmas gifts as I have lots of odd yarn. Thank you.

I don’t knit many socks but I do enjoy doing them! Hope you show yours off if you make any!
