One afghan square on the homemade blocking board is such a pretty thing. The job gets done. Having said that, with a pile of 25 or so squares to block, and looking at the size of the blocking board, it seemed like I could put three more squares on the board. The blocking should be accomplished much more rapidly.
In some ways, this does not have to happen quickly because I have perhaps 30 more squares to knit, but...once I started the blocking, I have been so pleased with the results that I wanted more gratification! Why have I not blocked anything all these years? Oh, wait...I did not have a blocking board. AND I did not think it was that important. Now I do.
This morning I found my husband's T-Square and drew three more squares on the blocking board, thus I can now block four squares at once. Nice!
