Curling is Cool

Last night I bathed my Clapotis in Eucalan and blocked it. This morning I took the pins out and it didn't budge, no lovely curling and twirling (or is it twizzling?) like it did before blocking. Ahoy, Blingo please tell me about blocking Clapotis. Half way down the page is a link to Kate's blog (the designer) and it says specifically in order to keep the curls, don't bother blocking! So back to the bath it went and now I'm in the process of unblocking my Clapotis. No photos today, sorry!
Will a little merino wool tide you over??

So good to know about the not blocking Clapotis. I was already thinking about a space long enough for her and now I don't have to! I also LOVE those wooly colors.
