What are you most proud of? I have always blocked my knits but I still learned a few tips from the class. In these pictures you can see what a huge difference between the blocked back and the unblocked front. Pieces are so much easier to handle and to sew together if you block them first but I don't always have time to wait for them to dry so sometimes it gets left to the end when I am all finished with ends sewn in.
