Ok, sooo I’m wanting to knit a pair of socks for my sis-in-law for christmas. It is mostly k2p2 rib, except for heel, toes and bottom of foot. I’m bad about not wanting to do swatches, but really want to become a better knitter.
Soooo, I’m knitting a swatch in the round, 4 rows garter, significant number of rows k2p2, then 4 rows garter. How do I block this thing?? Do I block the rib part to be even with the garter part, cause it really cinches in to where you almost don’t see the purls. Do I not even block it? I really want to get an accurate guage. Does the fact that its knit in the round come into factor when I block it?
Lots of questions I know, thanks in advance for your sock-blocking ideas :happydance:
