I recently completed a commissioned baby blanket and was very excited at the opportunity to use my blocking wires for the first time. These blocking wires are great for giving you a perfectly straight edge, but can also be used to create soft curves or well defined points. Once threaded though your garment, few pins are required to hold the wires in place during blocking.
Since this was a commissioned piece, I wanted to be sure my presentation was on point. One thing I like to do to finish packaging for gifts and commissioned projects is to use my remaining yarn to create a pom pom. It's super cute and easy and allows you to use every last bit of yarn.
You can also include a hand crafted tag on your hand knits to give them a finished look. You can embellish them with your own logo, care instructions, or a cute slogan like this or this.
