Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Grandma's Blocking Wisdom
I know I said I wouldn't be here every day but I still need to take breaks. I thought I'd finally be well enough to work a full day through but it turns out I'm older than I thought.
I was visiting Gram (do you remember that she's 91?) and we're sitting and chatting and she asked if I'd like a new afghan, she has a few done. Of course I do, wouldn't you? She says one is just about finished blocking and gets up. I'm thinking that she's going to go pull it off the bed (where I thought she blocked her afghans). Nope.
She was sitting on it to block it. Gram isn't exactly a small lady and she fits the chair edge to edge. I suppose it's a very efficient way to block for her. Remember that the next time you have something you need blocked. Just sit on it!
Have a Happy Hump Day.
very kewl. I hope I can up and meet your gran.
In MY house that kind of blocking would give new meaning to loss of stitch definition! HEE!
