Just embrace it
So I already have something of a reputation for being fond of blocking. I’ll assume you already know the lecture on how it’s magic and it’s not that hard and your knitting is totally worth it.
So instead I’ll give the lecture on how it’s good problem solving practice.
On how it will encourage you to use the stuff you already have in new ways.
On how, at the very least, it will confuse the heck out of anyone who catches sight of what you’re doing. Which really? Totally a bonus!
