And so it begins, processing.
A Nice Big Pile of Knits
Sometimes I get on a roll and just sit and knit and knit and knit. But before you know it, I've got a giant pile of knitted item to process.
Well, that was quite a blocking session!
I've been binge knitting acrylic infinity scarves lately. They seem to be the best seller right now. And to block acrylic items I use a hand held steamer much like this one: http://bit.ly/2eTbmXm. It's not my favorite steamer but it'll do for now.
Steaming, for me, is just as calming as knitting.
I love watching my work relax, and seeing the stitches fall into place. It's amazing to see Your knitted garment go from a tightly knitted, lumpy mass to a beautiful, professional garment.
It's worth the time to block your knitted items!
