Blocking the lacy frill

When you've finished knitting the wrist warmers, you need to block them to even out the fabric. The easiest way is to dampen them with lukewarm water, then pull them onto your hands for a minute to stretch them (gently!) to the right shape. While they are still wet, carefully roll up the glove sections, then lay the frill out as flat as possible on a towel or other absorbent surface. Tease the edge of the frill flat with your fingers and leave it to dry completely.
Once the frill is dry, unroll the glove parts and lay the gloves out flat to ensure that the glove parts are completely dry too. The pattern will soon be available at my etsy store; sign up to the newsletter in the sidebar and I'll let you know when it's ready.
