In January, most of the knitting I did was making hexagons to be part of a collaborative afghan.
And when it came time to block them, I knew it was going to be hard to pin down the points and avoid having the edges curl up or pull out of shape. So I thought of doing something like using blocking wires.
I don't have any blocking wires, but I do have a set of those little, teeny sock dpns. And I have the little skewers known as "turkey lacers" which are for trussing up turkey cavities. Necessity is the mother of invention, n'est-ce pas?
