Keeping with a similar theme to Katie’s post yesterday, I wanted to share another knitting tool with you. Katie gave me this awesome blocking board for my birthday.
I highly recommend it. It’s a nice large size size measuring 48″ x 30″ so it’ll fit large pieces or multiple projects. One of my favorite features are the measurement markers for length and width. It has a grid pattern that is laid out in square inches. It’s extremely helpful when trying to block to a specific size. The line guides also help to ensure that you’re blocking your piece straight. The material it’s made out of is really stable and sturdy. The pins can be a bit tough to push in, but I see that as a good thing. That way my pins won’t move and I can get a nice tight block. The material of the board can get wet without rippling or getting soggy. It sure beats a bath towel!
It’s gotten quite a bit of use this past week!
I am teaching knitting class again today! I hope the girls remember a little something from last week’s class. After today they’ll be bringing their projects home to work on over the next week, and then we’ll meet again next Thursday.
