Blocking question
I am halfway done binding off the Hemlock ring Blanket. used Sirdar Denim Chunky which is 60% acrylic, 25% cotton and 15% wool.

I need some advice on how to best block it to get it to lay as flat as possible. Do I just wet it like you do wool and stretch it out as much as poss and leave it to dry? or is there other ways of doing this.

Have decided that if i do need to wet it I would try and stretch it out on my kids 14ft trampoline and leave it to dry out in the garden. its quite hot here at the moment. would that be a bad idea or what?

thanks

That should work, though you might want to have it in the shade, not sure what direct sun would do to the fibers.
