I’ve been working on a pixel square blanket for the past month. If you didn’t catch my first two posts about it you can see it HERE and HERE. It is going to be a cute cupcake design…eventually 🙂 With well over 500 squares to make, I think I underestimated the time this blanket will take. But as my piles of squares continue to stack up, I noticed that my cute little pixels were starting to curl and look rounded and sometimes uneven. So I created a blocking station for them to sit on! Although I had to use the word blocking because I did not block these squares in the traditional way you would block an afghan square. Typically you would wet the squares and pin them down, one by one. Moogly has a great tutorial for this HERE. In my case, I just wanted to stretch the yarn a bit and let the squares take shape. I was inspired by THIS fabulous blocking station by LookAtWhatIMade. Her version is a true blocking station while mine is more of a docking station 🙂
Poke the skewers into the foam in 2.5 inch squares around. Leave a one inch gap between each square.
