Blocking

This week, we talk about the all-important subject of blocking – the last step to finishing your project. We discuss why it’s so important to block, methods for blocking, the tools you use, and how to McGuyver your blocking in a pinch! Also on Your Friendly Neighborhood Fiber Farm, Drea gives us an in-depth look at Five Sisters Farm in Plainfield, NH, and the beautiful Shetland sheep they raise there!
