Scheepjes Blocking Board (Limited Edition)
Limited Edition or not, the question is still - To block or not to block? Knitters and crocheters often have strong opinions on the subject, but if you decide to block your Granny Squares, then this Scheepjes Blocking Board – "grannyblokspanner" in Dutch - is ideal. The board measures 30cm square and is 2.54cm in thickness. It has deep metal-threaded 1.5cm sockets into which you screw as many of the plastic coated steel pins as required to make squares, rectangles, triangles octagons etc. The advantage of wet blocking means that your granny squares will dry to a regular size with straight edges, which makes assembling your project easier and gives a more professional appearance to the end result.

Have not received it yet
You mailed the board separate to the pins. I have not received the board. I am happy to review later but so far I have been waiting since 13/4/2017 ( order date) for delivery.
It was good and I didn't need to wet my blocks before putting them on the board - it still worked well. The only disadvantage is where the holes are for the posts. I had an octagon shape to block and it was not as even as hoped.
Nice range of sizes to block my crochet
I'm extremely happy with this blocking board and would definitely recommend it to anyone who needs to block, it takes all the phaffing out of the process for me, it's lovely solid sturdy bit of kit that comes with its own storage bag, although I haven't put it away yet as I'm constantly using it. I love the excellent results for minimal effort, it's certainly not cheap but for me it's a one off purchase, it's so well made I doubt very much I will ever need another one, it's actually excellent value for money.
