I got a little scared after I had wet it to block because it seem so much wider than it did before it was wet. There was a brief moment of panic because this is my first cardigan and I spent soooooo much time on it....of course I didn't want to screw it up at the very end! But I took a deep breath, waited 2 days for the bugger to dry and tried it on. It fits soooo nice and the wool is even softer after the blocking. I have about 2 full skeins left. I'm sure Mom will be thrilled to see it finished! Love ya Mom!!
