Blocking Knitting
I tried spray blocking my knitting, that is with a spray water bottle. It didn't help whatsoever. Any suggestions on better ways of shaping it?

If it's an acrylic fiber it won't block by spraying. Best thing to do is just wash and dry. That evens out the stitches which is mostly what blocking is anyway, and the steam created in the dryer relaxes the sts and 'sets' it. If it's another fiber, soak it and lay out flat to dry, patting it into place.
