Okay, I know this seems…amateur (well let’s face it…I basically am an amateur). But what exactly is blocking? I’ve seen pics, but it just hasn’t clicked for me yet.
Ahh, thanks for that! I think I got it now. Actually, I’m working on a Big Net scarf/shawl in stockinette stitch and the article says blocking will help reduce the curling. Do you think I could block the Big Net using the spritz method?
What is the fiber content of the yarn?
Here is the link for the yarn I’m using (see the first one-Big Net). Whaddya think?
wow that yarn is so fun! I just used a trendsetter yarn that was 35% wool, 25% poly and 30% acrylic…similar to yours. I used the steam method on it and it worked fine. I just set the iron to steam and hovered it above the item. Of course, mine wasn’t curling that much to start with though. I think I would try that first because its the easiest, then you could always switch to a more heavy duty method it you need to.
Okay, thanks a lot! I’ll try that first and let you know how it comes out:)
