So about once a week someone asks us for blocking wires. Veronica uses piano wire. Our friends at Uniquities sells a set that we can also get, if we carried the yarn that the company also sells. We had long ago just decided to send folks to Uniquities or their local hardware store for a little DIY project. But someone was just in this morning and totally blew my mind with the news that Target sells them! yeah, you heard me. TARGET. What?! And the price is pretty fantastic at $23.99. Does Target even sell yarn? Such a random, yet wonderful thing for them to sell…Course, you can’t find them in the store itself, but online is a decent option. While you are there, also pick up those foam floor tile things that we put kids on so they don’t destroy the floors. They make a great blocking surface and the foam is great for poking with blocking pins. AND, since they can be taken apart and reshaped, they are very flexible for various project sizes.
