The Sweater with Kathleen Dames | Season Three, Episode Eleven : The Block

The Sweater with Kathleen Dames
Released on Dec 30, 2016

Blocking! Today I’m doing it with the help of my washing machine (I know - I’m the luckiest New Yorker to have a machine in my apartment!). I do believe that blocking takes your knitted item from homemade to handcrafted, so don’t skip this step. If you still have questions about blocking your sweater, ask in the Ravelry forum:
