Last night I blocked two bookmarks and Romani. I used blocking wires to block them all and boy am I glad I had them. With Romani in particular they helped to ensure that the edge was not only straight but had an even width throughout. I remember the days when I would read a pattern, see that an item would need blocking and think to myself "I won't bother". Now I can see how much of a difference blocking makes, it not only increases the size of the piece but makes any details pop.
