** Blocking Your Dishcloth **
You can view my online blocking tutorial by following this link:
http://rachelsknittingcorner.blogspot.com/2010/04/how-do-you-block-your-patterns.html

I put the finished Dishcloth on a folded bath towel on the counter (the reason for the folded bath towel is so that you have a thick "base" so that when you push the background stitches of your Dishcloth down...it kind of makes the picture/letter stitches of your Dishcloth embossed or puffed up).  After I put the Dishcloth on the bath towel on the counter, I spray it with a water spray bottle until it's nice and damp...don't worry about how wet it gets, when the stitches are wet, they are really easy to manipulate...then I like to use the back of my knitting needle or fingers to flatten the background stitches, in kind of a "stamping" motion...when you flatten the background stitches, you will notice the pictures or words on your Dishcloth "pop" up.  When working with the letters/pictures, I use the point of my needle to "poke" or "push" the background-stitches that are right beside the letter/picture-stitches, down. Then I gently lay the finished blocked Dishcloth on a flat surface to dry…I like to use my cooling racks for better airflow.

Please note that I make every effort to ensure that my patterns are error-free, so if you do happen to find an error, please email me at: knits_by_Rachel@tbaytel.net to let me know so I can make the correction and get a newer corrected version out to you as soon as possible.  Thanks big bunches :o)

Please feel free to sell any finished items you make from my patterns.  I only ask that you respect copyrighted material and not post, sell or give away my patterns.  Thanks again :o)
