Steam Blocking

I block most of my projects by pinning them out and then spraying them with water. Sometimes I wet block, but really just for lace which I don’t knit very often. Then I watched Annie Modesitt’s video on steam blocking.

I’m loving this new method of blocking! It’s great for swatches and quick things. I’ve yet to decide if I like it for full garments, but it’s very promising.

I’ve been working on a Ribbed Cardigan for myself between submission projects and other deadlines. The knitting is quick, but the project is coming along slowly because I haven’t been giving it much time.
