I took her advise to wet block the ribbing of my Sit Com Cardi. Being lazy, I only blocked the lower ribbed portion and I did it by the wet block method. That is, I soaked the area to be blocked then pinned it out. Wet blocking, in my mind, is a much more severe blocking method than steam blocking. 'Sit Com', into some severe curling, required severe blocking.
Home from the meeting, 'Sit Com' was dry and ready to be tested. Here it is hanging vertically - as it will be on me - over the back of a chair.
And a post script for all those worried about our reverse weather patterns. Fred left Monday for Hearst - 11 hours north of our home on Southern Georgian Bay - to spend a couple of weeks fishing and playing with the Grand Kids. The temperature was 26' when he arrived. Today, he tells me it is to be 30'. I stayed home because I thougth 11 hours north would be colder! Dang!
