Studio Snippets – Ode to Blocking

February 24th, 2009

A customer came in the other day to our New York Store, and asked if there was a trick to keeping her gauge consistent.  She was working on an afghan made up of many knitted squares.  She knew she would be knitting them over a long period of time and wanted to know how to make every block exactly 1 foot square.  I told her, “Easy, blocking!”

Blocking is the final step to make every yarncraft project perfect.  It can even out your stitches, and make each piece exactly the size you want it to be.  If you live in New York, come by the Studio for more information on the the products we carry for blocking, and or blocking class.
