I finished The Lemon Curd scarf this afternoon, and I’m trying to block it. I just kept going until I ran out of yarn, and it ended up being 93 inches long! So it’s a good long scarf!
So now it’s pinned to the carpet, taking over my entire living room! And it also kind of smells like a wet dog. I don’t really like blocking natural fibers. Stinky.
Also, when I came home from work the other day this was left on my computer.
Awww. I love it.
That’s so funny because blocking natural fibers is one of my favorite things to do! I’m not sure how you do it, but how I was taught to block natural fibers is to wash them the same way you wash your hair. I stand with them in the shower and gently wash with my shampoo and conditioner. It’s convenient because those are both natural lavender and so my pieces smell fantastic when they are done. Always being careful not to agitate them I tend to roll them up in towels to press out the water and then pin them to the carpet or to towels depending.
Good luck, it’s gorgeous though.
