The top picture shows the true colors of the wool and the bottom is the before the wretched blocking begins. That will commence in the morning. One thing I learned from this, is always use a lifeline. I had several false starts before I was able to get to a spot with the proper stitch count. After you get past the initial flower rows it’s an easy feather and fan pattern. I might make another at another point in time. It was an enjoyable quick knit and lesson.
