Most knitters are familiar with straight blocking wires but sometimes we need curved or flexible wires. I have a set of curved blocking wires and I meant to bring them because we need them for Nicole’s Hitofude.
She ordered some and they arrived today. I love them!
These blocking wires are vinyl coated where mine are just wires. These also have plastic tips over the edges so they don’t snag the knitting.
Because of our new minimalist efforts, I probably will not order a set for myself. The ones I have work, though they aren’t nearly as nice as these but . . who needs two sets of flexible blocking wires? Not me.
But, if you don’t have flexible wires and you think you may need some, I highly recommend these. As soon as I get a few fires put out around here this morning (bath bombs made for Addie, pumpkin roll made for Nicole, come up with something for dinner), I’m going to block Nicole’s Hitofude and I’ll show some pictures of the wires in action.
