My so called Hemlock Blanket post-blocking



My very own version of the Hemlock Blanket is now blocked and sitting produly on the couch - or my back, in fact. The energic blocking was effective and it is now flat (-ish), wonderfully soft and I just feel like hugging it the whole time. Once again, after the owls sweater, this wool (Pura lana from Milana, a shop here in Buenos Aires) has proved to soften up and become wearable - almost next to the skin.

I love my new blanket and I´ll consider giving the pattern a second go, to see if I ever get the feathers and fans right. Still, I totally love my blanket - I love it a lot more than I thought I would!
