I'm attempting my first fair isle project, a knitted tam. I get the basics of the procedure from reading books and watching videos, but had a couple questions:
1) I know in fair isle you are not supposed to have floats that are over 5 stitches long to prevent puckering. However, I have seen methods that "weave" the yarn along the back. Does this make it OK to have longer floats?
2) Basic question-Does superwash block? Im using a superwash/tencel blend that I am spinning myself, but Im not sure if the superwash makes it unblockable. Im supposed to block it on a dinner plate whem Im done
