Finished all 12 squares for the first clue, including blocking them so I don't have a ton of wonky squares to try to block or just stitch together at the end. Now it's time to get started on the KAL
two questions: one, how did you block them, and two, I've been told by fabulous knitters (including one who just had an original design published in Vogue Knitting) that only natural fibers can be blocked. So, how does one block acrylic, a synthetic fiber?
When we block acrylic work, it just makes them lay a little flatter.
It doesn't make a dramatic difference, the way that blocking wool does.
It just makes everything look a little nicer.
