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).

It was quite clear that there would be at least one of these catch-up weeks for those of us who just can't spend our entire day crocheting. And this break is much appreciated by me so that I can get caught up like the rest of you.
Now I'll step off my soap-box.
