Topic: blocking cotton?  (Read 623 times)

So I've blocked one lace knitting project that was made with wool yarn. It turned out fairly well but I didn't like my yarn choice(it didn't show the stitches because it was too dark). So I've made the same project again using knitpicks shine worsted 60% cotton 40% modal. It knits beautifully and the stitches look great. And now I'm scared. What would be the safest method of blocking this kind of yarn? I soaked the last project in soapy water, rinsed it, blotted it and then pinned it out on some towels. Would that work again? Any comments or ideas would be much appreciated! Smiley Thanks-

This (http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter02/FEATdiyknitter.html) knitty article tells you all about how to block the diferent kinds of fibers Smiley

I collect the pieces of insight I find on the street and sew them into a quilt of understanding.

thank you for the article:) I still haven't blocked it but plan to do so on my next day off. I'll post some pictures when I do.
