I’ve never blocked anything, but I’m knitting with actual wool for the first time now, and I want to follow the “rules”.
I’ll probably practice on my first sock that never got a mate.
I think I understand the principle, but my question is do I have to re-block an item every time it gets washed? Evidently I only own acrylic sweaters, because I machine wash and dry them with no ill affect (my Momma taught me to look for machine washable and permanent press labels when I shop for clothes).
I read the washing instructions on the yarn I’m using–hand wash only, so I’ll do that right, but I honestly haven’t got a clue what to do after I wash it.
