Does anyone have a good resource for information about blocking? I know that blocking only works on natural fiber. I understand the principal, but would love detailed information before I start soaking and stretching something I've invested hours in creating. With my luck, my 7" x 60" basket-weave scarf will turn out 2" x 300"!

There's an excellent article

There's an excellent article on blocking in an old knitty. Hope that helps.
