Blocking Experiment

I am using the blocking wires that I picked up at Stitches West 2009 for the first time. The store sample scarf is finished, soaked and towel dried. Blocking wires were slowly threaded through and then pinned into place. What do you think? I think it is exciting to see all of those carefully made stitches clearly!
I now can see the advantage to the foam Knit Picks blocks that a customer shared at the knitting table last week. They reminded me of a kindergarten mat activity-but are actually an ingenious product for knitters. So I promptly ordered them for future projects.
