Quick blocking question
I knit a lacey scarf in two halves and am ready to Kitchener them together. Should I graft first then block, or the other way around?

My pre-block length is several inches shorter than the pre-block length given in the instructions, but I'm out of yarn so there's not much I can do about it! Is this common?

Thanks!

Probably best to put them together as best you can then block.

If they're really too short, pull them out as you pin to block. Then block.

It's surprising how much blocking can help with a lot of, uh, shall we say sins? Goofs?

PS - Totally gorgeous scarf! Good on you!
