Blind contour drawing forces us to observe the outside edge of the object very closely. This exercise helps an artist draw that extra detail more accurately. Also, it's always encouraging to see how well you can draw something, even if you have to trick your brain to do it!
Blind contour is not supposed to be a correct proportional drawing. The stranger it looks, the better. The important thing to do is to train your eye to draw what you really see.
