Blocking a wool/acrylic blend?
Can you block an item knit with a wool/acrylic blend yarn? I'm using Patons Decor for Starsky and it NEEDS blocking but I'm anxious that the acrylic content will make it un-blockable. I remember that some of you who participated in 'The Amy Project' blocked your squares.....how did that work out? The yarn I'm using is the same fiber content as the Plymouth Encore we used for that afghan. I need some reassurance that I haven't gone to all this work for nothing .

I realize that if I am able to block it, it might not STAY blocked, but if I have to do it after every washing I don't care as long as it ends up wearable.
