Block? I'm supposed to block? LOL!! I block very little. I'm too impatient and want to wear what I just made. My mom taught me to block by gently washing things and then laying them out on the blocking board with pins and shaping things just so. I have a friend that simply lays her work out on a large piece of cardboard (left over from when she got a new refrigerator) and then sprays it with water until it is just damp. I like her version better and have adopted it for the few things that I actually take time to block. I NEVER block socks.
