  1. So, I've been working on a color pooled blanket. When I first began, I under estimated the amount of yarn I'd need and only purchased 16 skeins. To my dismay, 16 skeins was only good for about 2/3 of the blanket. The problem is, the yarn has dyelots. I bought some more yarn to find that the color sections were longer than my original yarn, but not too long that I couldn't work around the extra length. I started with clusters of 3 with a 5.5mm hook, DC, and semitight tension (I would wear bandaids on my fingers to prevent the yarn burn). With the new yarn, I loosened the tension a bit to ensure
  2. Hello! Just wondering if anyone knows. Do I need to block something like jar cozies, and if so, how would I do it? I've been crocheting forever, but I'm fairly new to blocking.
  3. Hi to All, I need some advice on blocking. Currently, I have no way to block my finished items, meaning no surface to block on--not even an ironing board. But I have two scarfs (a little longer than average) that need blocking. One is made of acrylic yarn and the other one is a wool blend (20% wool). What is the best way to block these items? Also, how do you block other items, i.e., afghans, sweater sections, hats etc.? Can you fold a scarf in half to block it? What about a hat, which is double thick? I have the funds to purchase what is needed for blocking, so do I purchase a steam
  4. I'm working on the Bernat Wavy Ripple Blanket, using Bernat Baby Coordinates (acrylic). http://com.yarnspirations.pattern-pdfs.s3.amazonaws.com/Bernat_BabyCoordinatesweb4_cr_blanket.en_US.pdf It looks ok, but the edges are definitely not straight, and the wavy ripples don't really lay flat. When finished, I think I should block the blanket. I have a general idea of how to do this, but could use some direction. Is blocking even something that can be done on this type of yarn? Thank you very much!!
