Blocking the Blocks

A picture of the panels of the knitted baby blocks I'm working on, snapped just before I began blocking them. This is my first project that requires precision blocking, and boy do I ever hate it. But the blocks will be cute, and Bulis will be happy. I hope.

I love your baby blocks!! What a great way to use up odds and ends. To save yourself time to block and sew up, have you ever thought about picking up at one side of one of the squares and then knitting the next one. You can even pick up stitches on the sides of a third square and knit them together with the one you are working on eliminate seams. (Horst Schulz gave me this idea with his "patchwork Knitting" Am I making sense?

I know I could explain better if you were sitting across from me.

Good luck
