Blocking Handknits

with Kate Atherley
Blocking Handknits
Blocking is the easiest, fastest way to take your knitting to the next level. Finish knitting projects so that they look, fit and feel as wonderful as you imagined.
Blocking brings out the best in your work. With knitwear designer and author Kate Atherley as your guide, learn how blocking makes your stitchwork pop, your knitwear fit, your projects feel soft to the touch, and so much more. Kate will teach you about blocking, drying, and caring for a huge range of fibers, as well as how to protect your projects and supplies from moths and pests. Kate will even demystify using blocking wires to create perfectly straight edges, and pinning projects to form the shape and size you desire. Plus, Kate will take you step-by-step through blocking mittens, hats, lace scarves, lace shawls, one-piece and multi-piece garments for the fabulous finish they deserve.

"Thank you Kate for doing this class. I really appreciated every bit of information that you gave. ... It helped me to really understand what goes into blocking. I have read plenty of blogs/articles on blocking and watched YouTube, but this class by far has been the most helpful. Once again, thank you!"
