I can never work out sleeve lengths. I've put ages into it only to have it still come out wrong (I was 8" adrift on one memorable occasion but that was with a knit and shrink project). Now I assume that it will come out wrong and need fixing.


I am keeping my fingers crossed for you, but it sounds like this is all very well calculated out.

A very experienced blocker, one who has been blocked her customers garments for about 5 decades told me last week that she always blocks sweaters using a hot steam iron. and a damp linen cloth. She hovers the iron over the piece, with the damp cloth down for protection and voila. I just tried it with one of my swatches but I don't have the knack. I'm going bac to the sink!
