Blocking wires thread into the edge stitch, especially along the straight edges! It keeps an even, clean edge...and eliminates hours of pinning and pinning! My spares are laying across the top of my Central Park Hoodie. I took this photo for someone else over at the Ravelry CPH-KAL.
See them here, where I am pointing?
Here was my Viking Knits Cable Scarf, drying on the blocking board. You can't see the wires real well because the color blends with the scarf!
Blocking wires are not expensive, however, they do best when used along with the blocking board, or something else that will allow you to "nail down" the wires. This scarf is 48" long...and I pulled it out wide to shape the curves of the middle Viking cables...so I used more pins to secure the wires. At no time did I pin the scarf itself. Only the wires. Places like Patternworks.com and et all...sell the blocking boards and blocking wires sell separately.
Hope this helps!
