Wow. What a difference blocking makes. I have only knit about 3 or 4 sweaters in all the time I've been knitting but I never blocked any of them. I always skipped that process in a hurry to wear, or give, the finished product. I can now see the error of my ways. I unpinned the back of my sweater from the blocking process this morning and I immediately began to understand the importance of this step. It has a more finished and "stable" (for lack of a better word) shape. I'll never skip this step again.
