Blocking Crochet

Being relatively new to crochet I have only recently discovered "Blocking."    I made this awesome shawl for my sister and was pretty disappointed at how small it was, for $50 worth of wool.  It turns out I was missing the most important finishing step... Blocking.  Its fantastic and the missing link for creating the perfect project.  Here is a how to link.  I have crochet blocking all over the house now.
This is the shawl that almost doubled in size after blocking.
  The floor is perfect for large items.  
The ironing board is perfect for smaller items.
