Blocking cotton/acrylic blend?
I've not blocked anything before since I've knit mostly soakers and longies. But now I'm working on the Branching Out scarf from Knitty with a 55% cotton/45% acrylic blend and I'll need to block it when it's finished. I know straight acrylic does not block well, but is there enough cotton in this yarn to make blocking worthwhile? How do I do it?

Thanks for any help!!
