I agree with your comment. I really appreciate Bernat for this Crochet A Long, too. I am glad we have this week to "catch up". I only have 2 of Clue 6 completed and I have not blocked anything yet because I was expecting a free week. I love the mystery part of this CAL and I hope Bernat will do another in this format. I still have to learn how to post pictures so maybe I can do that this week, too.

same here, stitchychic. Well, i do block for certain things, like clothes, especially if they're curling, but these I haven't.
anyone ever blocked a large one-piece blanket? I'm going to HAVE to block the orange mandala blanket i'm working on in order to get it to lie properly. but it's big (about 5' diameter), i have to use steam, and I dont' have a non-wooden surface anywhere handy I can do that one...can't use carpeted floors, can't use hardwood floors, can't use wooden kitchen table. suggestions? weather's not nice enough to do it outside on the deck..and that's wood too! when i was a teenager I once put a towel down on my mom's good antique mahogany dining room table and did my ironing on that cuz I was too lazy to get out the ironing board.....boy did i catch hell for THAT, and for good reason. I put a permanent white spot on the table which is still there (it's my table now).
Go to a store like Home Depot or Lowes and get packages of the cushion flooring squares to put together to make a surface to block the large single piece. These packages of squares have puzzle piece type edges so they hook together easily and stay hooked together until you decide to take them apart. Usually they individual squares are 24 inches square so you would only need 9 of them to make a 6 foot square.

You could always take a picture of each motif and include it with the main "Mystery Crochet Along" information page and wrap it in a pretty box. Let them know you have a few more mystery weeks to go before they can have their beauty!

The thing I love most about crocheting and knitting is that we all have a common bond with amazing support. I love helping fellow yarn lovers and I welcome those that are willing to help. I have never in all my years of crocheting had an experience with a bunch of whiners.
