Imagine all of your garments fitting perfectly, looking extremely well-made, and staying that way. In this class, learn when and why 'before-you-knit and after-you-knit blocking' is so important for every knit project. See dramatic differences between blocked and unblocked hand-knit fabrics and learn how you should approach all your knit projects. Prevent unexpected results related to gauge, shrinking, stretching, and dimensions. See the tools available to help shape your garments to give the best finished appearance. If you think blocking is just pinning in place and wetting when you’re finished knitting, this class promises to elevate your skill level.
