That's what blocking is for. You'll have to maneuver the pieces into shape and let them dry that way. The fibers will retain some memory and stay that way until it's washed again, when it will need to be blocked to dry again. Unless it's machine washable and dryable. Machine drying tends to tighten up knitting for the most part.
