I'm having trouble with edges curling on some clothes I've knnitted for 18" dolls. Any suggestions? I'll look up "blocking", as I've forgotten how to do that. The items are knitted with fingering yarn.

Yeah, the items that don't have stockinette at the bottom of the skirt and sleeves are fine. One nice little dress, especially, needs help. Funny, I've been knitting all kinds of things since I was a teenager, and that was a l.o.n.g. time ago. I don't think I've had this problem before. I'm using two books from House of White Birches, for 18" dolls. A lot of cute things!
Are the doll clothes knit in stockinette stitch? That tends to curl up naturally, but blocking can help a bit. The only thing to combat curling edges is to make sure to knit some sort of edging in a stitch that tends to lay flat - like garter stitch or seed stitch.
hope that helps!
