Di I have to tell you that addy you gave me was absolutely fantastic. Wasn't the article I'd originally found but think if anything it was better. Have now printed myself out a hard copy as well as saved it ... and what's more I've "ironed" the acrylic and its worked a treat. One item is still not quite perfect but that's down to me and not the instructions ! Thanks for taking the time to post.
Angela, if you take a look at the addy that Di sent me it should help! Having said that, it sounds what you do is very similar to when you block your crochet. You'll probably have to copy and paste the details as pointing to the link won't take you to it - at least that's what I had to do.
Thanks again Di, so pleased with results
