I am knitting my first afghan by knitting a bunch of smaller squares. I don't have a predetermined size for the finished product - just a general idea of how many knitted squares I will need to get to a general size I will be happy with.
My question has to do with blocking. Should I block all the pieces separately before sewing them together, or get it all together and then block it?
I'm leaning towards blocking after it's all together, but the size of the finished product makes this task seem daunting. Getting a big blanket wet, squeezing out the water, laying it straight and letting it dry would be a time and space consuming project!
I've knitted a few scarves before, but never blocked any of my work, so any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful. I've attached a photo of two of my squares. Two colors, although both are the same type/weight and knitted in the same design. I've laid the squares on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper to give you a sense of the size - each square is approx 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
Thank you in advance!
