You can join at any time! This knit along is still realtively new. I haven't seen the Peruvian Cuzco Wrap yet. Do you have a link?

ContiKnitter pointed me inthe direction of this great site from Knit Picks explaning all the ins and outs on blocking lace. Hope that helps! Maybe other people could give you some tips as well.
