assembling baby sweater--to block or not to block
Hello again. I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and I would like to say how grateful I have been for your support in the past years. I look forward to being here more often in 2013.

In working on the baby sweater (Babies who lunch) in the Little Sublime Handknit book, I find directions that tell me to block the pieces of the sweater before assembling the sweater and joining the seams. I have never done this before and am looking for your insights as to how to go about doing this. I do have a good blocking board and pins, but I use that for drying our store bought sweaters when they are washed. I don't really know how to block with steam to get the item to lay flat without loosing it's body/spring. Any ideas at all will be welcome as always. Thank you,
