Here's a hint -- you don't have to block everything by stretching. Just washing and laying out to dry (or in the dryer if it can go) is usually enough to even out the stitches. For lace you usually have to stretch a little, a round blanket is difficult though. You can also do lace in a larger needle which opens up the sts and pattern. I have heard people do love blocking wires though, so that may help you.
