Yay, it's finally finished! Go to the first page to see the pictures. Technically, I'm still trying to block it (please oh please stop curling even though you're acrylic and done in stockinette!!! ) and I need to weave in the ends, but still pretty much done with it!

Oh and any advice about blocking it?? Right now I just pinned it to my mattress in the hopes that it would stretch out? Should I wet it? Should I iron it with a piece of fabric over it? Suggestions?

It's really lovely, all your work really paid off, and I'm betting it will be one of the nicest knitted things there. Great color, too.

I don't either. If the judges say something, that's when you explain how you deviated from the pattern to add personal design elements.

Great job on a great blanket!
