Here's a good article on blocking: http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter02/FEATdiyknitter.html
I still don't get it.

Great job though! They look great!

Great job momma! I love Paton's, though it sure does pill on my crawlers! I'm not as worried about it for shorties though!

Re: Show-off! LTK Picky Pants Shorties

They look great! I just bought the pattern a few days ago. I've been so busy and don't have much time to knit. Hope to get around to it soon. I am a new knitter so hopefully I'll be able to handle the pattern.
