I will try my next hook size up - 9.00mm / N
any body have an idea - if its normal to go that big with this pattern?

I use my finest knitting needles 2.25 or 2.5 to thread through the edges of the block and then set the needle-framed square just formed over the corner nails. I have sprayed the squares with a fine mist and left them to dry, but also will consider using the steam iron held a couple of inches above it, and again leave it to dry. My homemade blocking system!
