Getting into the bonfire night/autumnal theme I thought I'd whip up a block called Catherine Wheel from my 200 Crochet Blocks book last night. Feeling rather pleased with myself I thought I'd starch it to give it that crisp 'blocked' feel . Now I've never blocked before (although I probably should have) and set about heating up my iron - not giving a second thought that I'd used acrylic. Oh yes...I should've read up on blocking because I really didn't have a clue what I was doing.
A rather squished looking block. Never mind. Tonight I will be reading up on blocking! Have a great Saturday!
