Blocking question
I have just completed a child's sweater in Paton's Astra. It seems to be sloppy and lifeless. Is there anyway of causing the fibres to contract or anything I can do to block it more attractively?

Maybe washing it will shrink it? Follow the label's directions for a normal washing and see if that doesn't help.
