in which I plead for help
So I'm still not done those gloves (possibly because I misplaced them, though that has yet to be verified). In the interim, I have a question! I knit the Hemlock Ring lap blanket/throw, and I cannot *wait* to put it into service. Problem is, I need to block it. I think I can find the space to do it (though it won't fit into my sink, and I haven't got a tub to soak it in...), but this thing will be big, which is normally not a problem. I've blocked some big lace pieces (recently with the aid of my new blocking wires... lovely!), but this thing is supposed to be round. I can't use blocking wires or my usual tricks to block something round! Do I pin out each wee bind off picot? (which, I love, even if they took foreeeeever) do I get it close and smush the edges? I don't think I have enough pins to block this thing! Does anyone ave tips on blocking this? The sooner I figure it out, the sooner you all get photos!
