Anyone do it?
It sounded good on Knit and Crochet Today so I bought a little steamer just for blocking.
I really don’t have enough horizontal real estate to be laying out pieces until they dry naturally.
I found out that it shrinks Moda Dea Lazy Daisy.
Knit and Crochet Today warned about blocking changing gauge and possibly color change but acted like steaming was no different. (In their defense they did say to test a swatch for blocking, I guess my swatch was 2 1/2 skeins worth with a neck hole.)
I can salvage the sweater, the pattern seemed small so I was figuring on a crochet edging anyway.
Short of wasting a swatch how do I know which fibers it will shrink?
Any other pitfalls I should know about? Any how-to tips at all?
