A Blocking Shortcut
Well, I can always count on my mom for a shortcut – just one of the things I love about her. My mom is a doer, is always moving and if there is an easier, faster way to do something–she knows it. She doesn’t do things by the book or by the recipe; she doesn’t follow instructions. She doesn’t worry about things being perfect
! What!? Where did I come from?
My mom called me after she read my blocking post

I spritzed with water:
I finished here:
Great! Thanks Mom.
It worked well for the 100% cotton sweater above, and for this cowl in cotton:
But on the soft wool blend sweater I blocked next, I had to rely on the good old fashioned t-pins . . .uhh. I still dread blocking,
but it does work :).
Hope you all had a great weekend.
