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

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: http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/kathleen-dames-design/topics/3552356


If you haven’t already, visit http://www.kathleendames.com/thesweater to sign up for the newsletter and get your free Basic Cable pattern*. Your link to download the PDF will be in your Welcome email. Be sure to create your project page on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basic-cable-2


Thanks for being here, and happy knitting!

xoxo, Kathleen
