Go on over to Eunny's site for an excellent tutorial on blocking. I was surprised to learn that she doesn't use a blocking board. She covers her mattress with plastic and pins through. I have a pillow top so that may not work, but I will give it a try. I wanted ask her if she swatches everything, but I know better than to do that...I just can't seem to bring myself to swatch socks though I understand that it might be necessary. Actually I swatched Hawaii Joy, but that's because I'm concerned about maintaining the integrity of the Pomatomus pattern, not gauge.
Do you swatch everything?
