Here is how I pull out my knitting and rewind the yarn. I always use natural fibres so they can be ironed (cotton) and pressed with no ill effects. In fact I learned many years ago, from a rep from the Wool Council, to ‘kill’ wool knitting with my steam iron. It sets the knit structure and helps it keep it’s shape over time.
Here I’m unraveling the left front, running it under my iron (set on med/wool) with lots of steam, letting it cool and puddle on the floor then rewinding it ready to reknit!
I’ve gone back to my Garment Designer pattern which I created for this client and mad the adjustments…now back to reknitting!
