Here’s the way I block my lace. I use the carpeted floor in my guest room.
Run a white sewing thread up the edge stitches of both long sides. Leave ends at least 1 foot longer than you expect the scarf to block out to.
Sit in sink full of cold water for about 5 minutes.
Lift [color=red]carefully[/color] onto a large white bathtowel.
Wrap wet scarf and step on towel to remove as much moisture as possible, but DON’T twist or stretch scarf.
Spread clean white sheet on bedroom carpet.
Make a loop (kind of like a lasso loop) at each end of the thread. Pin the top loops of each long edge to the floor through the sheet as wide apart as you want the scarf to be.
Pin the top edge to the floor with pins every 2 or 3 stitches.
Work on down the scarf, keeping the width between the edges even and stretching the length until the pattern looks correct. Every 6 inches or so I put a pin inside the white thread to keep the width correct.
When you get to the bottom of the scarf, pin the bottom loops out very taut. Pin the bottom edge out straight every 2 or 3 stitches just like you did the top.
Let dry (and keep any pets OUT of the room :teehee: ).
When fully dry, remove pins, cut the bottom loops off and pull the thread out of the edges from the top loops.
I think this is the best way to get nice straight sides on a scarf, shawl or wrap if you don’t have blocking wires.
I hope we get to see a picture of the finished product!
