No, I haven't finished but I do have a rather basic question. What is your preferred method of blocking for fair-isle knitting and why?
I wet-block everything. Even lace (shhhhhhh). I really want to make sure that my knitting is clean and I just don't trust my iron around my knits. Period. My logic is that the animal in question never went near a hot iron, its hair (or silk) was never intended to go near a hot iron, and I have put far to much work and effort into knitting whatever it is I have just knit to potentially damage it with an iron.
How about you?
