What are your favorite tools for blocking? I am getting back into knitting after a two year hiatus due to school. I plan to get into sweaters this fall/winter, so I just wanted to get an idea of what people use for blocking their items.

Honestly? A spare bed or carpet. A good wet block and as many heavy duty T pins and I can get my hands on for lacework (most of my blocking). I also like the Knitter's Pride blockers that are several pins in one plastic handle- those are nice for blocking garments. A good steam iron is also helpful.
Some sort of soft padding. Like the kiddie interchangeable block mats, a set of blocking wires, T-pins and U shaped pins, and towels. Lots and lots of towels.
