I've been looking for this site for awhile now since it's such a great article about blocking using waste yarn, particularly for lace projects (which I haven't really attempted yet, but it's on the burner!). And while organizing my bookmarks, which have multiplied like rabbits since I've been on this site, there it was!

It's a SUPER article with very good pictures which will set lace knitters up for easily blocking unusual pieces.

Have fun!

I think the best advice in that lies in someones comment...

"I love the string idea its great! I used to block on the bed as well until I discovered that the baby foam blocks that the alphabets come on that interlock and the babies crawl on as a mat works just as great. Better I think as you can have your bed at night! OH and the best part about the blocks is that they are able to be staning upright to save precious space!!

My next purchase is going to be those blocks!
