  1. 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.

  4. I'm still new and looking for easy patterns, I found this pattern for a shrug that I would really like to make but I'm afraid to start it because I'm not sure what they mean by the "finishing" and "edging" instructions. The link to the pattern is http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2584 If anyone can describe to me in plain English exactly what they mean I would appreciate it. Thanks for your help. Rita
  5. I am a a newbie crocheter and making an ear warmer with a contrasting border. I have completed my chain of 70 and sc 16 rows and am ready to crochet the border but don't know how. Do I sc just the top and bottom rows and then connect the two end pieces together. Do I use a sl st to connect the ends? Thank you.
