        So much better than what I used to do

        I had been previously wet blocking knitted items on a towel on the carpet in the family room. Hard on the back crawling around the floor. So now I can use the blocking mats on the kitchen counter so much easier. The blocks can set up to the shape you need. Some of my items are rather big and I needed two sets of mats. I think the items dry faster on the mats than on the towel/carpet. And now the dog and cat can run through my project with it on the floor :)

        COLOR BLEEDS INTO WORK - DO NOT BUY!!!

        I was devastated when one of these blocks bled color into a recently finished white lace baby blanket -- would not recommend to anyone.

          Comments about Lace Blocking Mats:

          I used to use a sewing board covered with layers of towels...never felt confident that pins would hold. This is just a great, clever idea. I am planning to get another set so I can block larger items...fantastic that I am able to do that!

              Comments about Lace Blocking Mats:

              I have never worked with blocking mats before so I didn't know what to expect. I used them & the blocking wires & pins for the very first time on a lace shawl. I believe it came out looking great, just wish I could have had one more mat. It didn't matter what configuration I put them in I had a small part of the shawl hanging off the edge. lol!

              I used to block sweater and smaller projects like IPAD sleeves. They came out perfect. If it had calibration in inches it would have been a perfect product. I like it overall.

                      these blocking boards are great. You can snap together as many as needed. You need pins to hold the project to the boards. The grid lines help you keep things stright.

                          Made my 1st lace shawl and this was my 1st blocking project. Found the set to be slightly small for a half circle shawl. Would have been fine for a shawlette. Background colors were pleasing and the plastic odor dissipated rapidly after the package was opened. I did not want the wet wool to pick up any background odor and it did not. If you do larger lacework products you will definitely want 2 sets.
