Blocking Does A Body Good.

This is the back of Regine unblocked. The tension is crap. It looks like a monkey knit it.
These are the sleeves after blocking. Trust me when I say these sleeves looked similar, if not worse than the back photo above.

Blocking is a miracle. It takes time and practice- just like knitting. But it is a skill that enhances the end product like none other. So many things can be fixed by blocking. If you don't do it- start. Spend the 25 bucks on blocking wires and go at it.

And this product that Sachi pointed out looks like heaven. Let's just say that it's added to the list. The very long list.
Tomorrow, more spinning and possible a kiss up post to the lovely ladies of the New Haven Snb.

Wow, I've never heard of the blocking wires, but they look like a great tool. Thanks for the tip!

I'm hoping to find some blocking wires this weekend. It's amazing what the right tools can do.
