Blocking Cotton Knit Lace

The lace garters that I knit for my wedding kit up really quickly, but they do not immediately look like lace because they curl. The way I decided to block them was very effective, so I have created a video to help demonstrate how I accomplished this.

The steps:
  1. Wet the lace in the sink, and blot it dry with a towel.
  2. Pin the lace out on a towel or blocking mat (right side up) so it holds the desired shape.
  3. After allowing the lace to dry, spray the lace with starch spray.
  4. After the spray has dried, remove the pins, turn the lace over and spray the wrong side.
  5. Use the lace however you intended.
