I never understand why people say that blocking isn't necessary. Anyone remember ArtLady's wonderful visual from a while back? This is a great visual too and it really helps show why blocking is necessary. I think it's sort of like a gauge swatch- people just want to get on with it and skip critical steps. People just want to use their knitted item and get on with it!
