Magic Blocking with Wires, Pins, and Frames with Denise Bell
Every shawl knitter talks about the "magic" of blocking lace. Turning a puddle of lace into a striking shawl takes more than just the wave of a magic wand; it takes tools and attention to detail. We will look at typical shawl shapes and discuss how to use blocking wires, pins, rulers, foam mats, a towel, a yard stick, and Shetland dressing frames to stretch and pin them for maximum effect. A variety of shawls will be on hand, but students are welcome to bring a lace shawl to facilitate discussion and demonstration.
