Blocking & An Etsy Treasury

When I first started knitting, I never really thought much about blocking. I actually didn’t know what it was for the longest time, and after I investigated and figured it out, I was too impatient to try.

And then I knitted lace for the first time. And what an amazing difference it made.
Since then, I block most things. Recently, I got a custom order for 6 felted clutches. ¬†Normally, I wouldn’t block something I’m going to felt, but after blocking the first one, I found out what a difference it makes! It gave the bag a more uniform size, and made the sides so much easier to sew up. Currently, I have a pair of fingerless armwarmers blocking, and can’t wait for the finished product!
Do you block most of your projects?
PS, my pumpkin spice armwarmers made it into an Etsy Treasury! Check it out:
