Two years ago, I finally broke down and ponied up the dough for the BLOCKING BOARD that folds up when not in use, along with blocking wires.
This is why I am so pleased with the purchase: I aggressively block my garment pieces, which means the pieces are undergoing the process for as many days as it takes for the wet towels on top of them to become bone dry.
How could I do that on the bed? Or the kitchen table?
Another good point: the blocking board is not adversely affected by this aggressive “wet blocking” method. And the moisture does not go through to the surface below, whether that be the floor or a counter top.
The blocking board does not warp from the moisture.
Love it! Recommend it! It was worth the money. :waving:
FYI: Another worthwhile “can’t live without it” item is the wooden swift and Royal ball winder…for those who purchase yarn by the “hank”.
