Yes, yes, yes, at long last. I measured it in its finished state and no wonder it weighs a ton, 94 inches by 67 inches which is a lot bigger than in the pattern but exactly the same 600 squares. Now I have to find someway to photograph it.
Forget the rules about blocking it with a damp cloth and just the hands. I ran a steam iron over it on a very low setting.
A new iron is going on my shopping list now. When the last one died from old age, I decided to buy a cheap one for the few bits of ironing that I can't get out of. False economy, never do it.
There are no descriptions on the temperature dial except max and min. The water tank is so small it adds time to ironing by having to fill it constantly. The cord isn't long enough unless you're sitting on the power point. And there's no heat in it. It's heat not hard pressing that irons clothes.
So I'm looking for wattage, long cord, temperature details, ergonomic design and getting it on sale would be a bonus. I don't need an ironing board. The Matron of Honour at my wedding bought me that and it's outlasted the marriage, the husband and her friendship.
