Blocking Your Knits -- It's not finished until it's blocked!



Many of our customers have asked for a detailed blocking technique class. You will learn why it is important to block your knits, 3 primary blocking techniques and in which situations to use them, the do’s and don’ts of blocking, and how to use today’s blocking tools for your project. There will be time for Q&A to answer any questions you may have about blocking. If you have a specific case you want to ask about, bring the garment and ball band with you to class.
