There are so many good reasons to block. It improves stitch definition, especially in lace and can improve the fit and shape of a garment.

There are some things like lace and colorwork that really need to be blocked.

Does everything need blocking? No. But most things would look better if you did.

That said, I rarely block anything. But I think about how I should most of the time.

Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.
