I knitted the beautiful lace shawl adverised several weeks ago, and would appreciate assistance in how to block it. Thank you
I do 1-ply Cobweb Shetland Lace shawls, so I do a lot of blocking. You can find my reply to an identical question I answered earlier in October.
Move your cursor to ''Forums''. Select ''General Knitting Discussions''. Then select ''How do I?''. Go to page 2, and near the bottom of that page you will see ''Re: Blocking question'' - last post by mandyangela Wed 28 Oct 09.
The answer does appear quite lenghty and probably looks scary, but as I suggested to the young girl I replied to, you could try out the technique on a small piece (which doesn't have to be fine lace) just to get a feel for the blocking.
And please do contact me if you have any questions. I have clicked the option of ''add this post as favourite'' so I can look to see if there's anything I can help you with.
