Hi guys and girlies

I'm making my first ever blanket, and had a query question thing
i've made each block in a lace pattern with a garter stitch border. I did check the FAQ on blocking, but couldn't find an answer about whether I should block each square after making, or whether I should stitch them altogether and then block it

Thank you for any help you can give

You don't mention what yarn you are using - if acrylic, I don't believe it blocks. If wool, then from what I've seen, people will usually block each square and then sew together.

I have read both schools of thought on the matter.  I think a lot of people block each piece first that way they know everything will line up but some people figure they can block out problems after they have sown everything together.  I myself would probably block out the squares first.  And yeah acrylic doesn't block so if its acrylic don't bother just sew!

Thanks both!
I think it might be acrylic (I need to check the labels...) so thanks for mentioning about its nonblockability (?) otherwise that could have been interesting!
