Woodworking + Crochet, and the Magic of Blocking!

It is only 10 days until I travel to the USA to attend the Knit and Crochet Show! My husband and I have been busy creating samples to show while we are there. We have been wanting to combine our crafts for a long time, and we are just about ready to debut our first projects together. Woodworking + Crochet= something wonderful!

While working on our samples, I was reminded once more of the magic of the blocking process. I crocheted this tiny granny square out of DMC pearl cotton 8. I actually wanted more of a granny rectangle. By wet blocking the square, I was able to form it into the exact size and shape I wanted. Blocking...a step in the process of finishing a project that you should never overlook!
