Blocking success!

Posted by

Thank you for all your suggestions yesterday regarding blocking my crochet squares.

You’ll be pleased to here I’ve had success on the blocking front.

Due to cats and husbands I prefer to keep my work off the floor and so went with pinning them to my ironing board.

I am fortuitous that last time I replaced my ironing board cover I went with a stripy one which helped get a nice good square shape no end!

So here we go. I managed 9 on the board. I could have fitted another 3 but I ran out of pins!

Before stretching them into submission I hovered over them with my steam iron and then did the same again once pinned.

Success, don’t you think?

  1. They look great. I have to confess my ignorance here. Until you started posting about blocking your squares I had no idea that it needed to be done. Thanks for sharing. We can all learn from your learning experience.

      1. I am so sorry I appeared to ignore all your wishes. It was a mad time. My mum had an op on the Saturday which was hard and took up a lot of my time….then it happened! No time for anything extra. Sorry. X
