I'll think of it as practice?  
Hubby was so impressed by the results of a fairly gentle blocking (soak, lay flat on towel, pin, let dry) on my yarn test swatches from this weekend that he wants me to try the same thing with a 12" wide, 8' long scarf I knitted him a couple years ago. (Not a Dr. Who - a Linux penguin illusion scarf. It's only 2/3 as much knitting.)

I have to agree that the scarf is kind of curly, but the idea of working on something that big is a little daunting.

It will be fine. :) It's just a little water. :)

And a big honkin' scarf. I think this might call for blocking wires instead of pins, so that it won't be dry before I finish pinning it. I also don't know how good the results will be since it's Plymouth Encore instead of 100% wool, but it's worth trying. Just need to find enough towels that aren't the good bath towels to pin into...the scarf is longer than my bed. :)
