A couple of months ago, I treated myself on some Sublime cashmere merino silk combo, dk weight for 2 different projects.

- about blocking: do I block only once, before putting all the pieces together or do I need to do this each time after washing the project (until know I've always lost interest somewhere half the project so I never had to deal with this one)
- when knitting with double thread, do you guys roll the skein with double thread beforehand or do you knit with 2 balls at once (no pun intended)
Anyway, love the site and the useful comments but above all the nice (and funny) things with which you support one another! I'll keep on reading the posts, even if you think I'm not physically equipped to entry myself ;-)
