About Knitting Blocking
You may have spent a lot of hard-earned time knitting a sweater for a loved one, only to find it refuses to lay just right after it is finished. Blocking knitting is a technique used to ease and redistribute stitches, gently stretching the finished piece to its proper dimensions, and allowing it to lay flat. Blocking creates a beautiful, even look to any knitted piece. Tools are available to help you with this task, including blocking boards, T-pins, and blocking wires. With a little instruction, blocking knitting can be easier than you may imagine, and you are sure to find it is well worth your time. Books with instructions for knitting and blocking are available on eBay, as well as the tools you may find useful. eBay's Top-rated sellers feature a variety of new and used merchandise, and many sellers offer free postage and packing of your order.
