Throwing Caution to the Wind

I finished knitting both fronts of my sweater and it's been languishing around while I debated the pros and cons of not blocking before assembly. I know there is a possibility that this won't end well, but I plan to sew it all up without blocking, that is, after I tackle the sleeve cables. I just want to get it done. I realize that knitting a big sweater doesn't exactly fall under the instant gratification label, but I really can't visualize myself waiting for the pieces to dry on the blocking boards. After the seaming, I'll tackle the neck band and hood (possibly removable).

To see what else I've been knitting skip over to my blog.

I normally block at the end. Of course, since I knit things as one piece there is not a lot of choice, but I am a "block once and be done" kind of person.
