Free Event - Block(ing) Party!

  • The Black Squirrel 651 Addison Street, Suite B Berkeley, CA, 94710 United States

We've had a lot of new knitters and crocheters come to us with questions about blocking. So we decided that, instead of hosting a class, we wanted to host a free workshop! Come to the shop at 11:30 on Sunday, March 26th, and bring your own blocking supplies and projects that need blocking! Just make sure the projects are on the smaller side as they'll need to fit into a salad spinner! We'll show you the best ways to wet block hats, scarves, shawls, sweaters, and even socks, and you can even leave your project until Tuesday to dry!

If you don't have any blocking supplies, we recommend that you go to Target and get yourself a large salad spinner and a package of party balloons. Then call or email our shop and pre-order any other items you need, such as blocking matts, blocking wires, Knit Blockers, T-pins, sock blockers, and Eucalan wool wash, so that we can make sure we don't run out! Bringing towels form home or kid's interlocking foam mats are also useful for this workshop. Hope to see you there!
