Blocked :-)

Now, I am officially all done. I am not sure if you can tell that big of a difference, but here it is all blocked and dry. The difference in real life is huge.
And, I have realized that I am allergic to wool! Can you believe it? Isn't that just terrible for a knitter? Oh well, I can still use the blanket... just not too much! For now on I will have to stick with silk.. ha ha...

It's perfect! I'm so sorry that you are allergic to wool! What a terrible fate for a knitter! How did you find out? Were you wearing wool sock?

You know, I had some problems with a scarf that I had knit this past winter that was a wool blend. Then, while knitting this I was resting my elbows on it and got a terrible rash on my elbows! That just confirmed it. Since this was knit with Fisherman's Wool, it has to be the wool I am allergic to. :-(
What do think this will mean for my chances with cashmere??

Oh I can tell a difference. It's lovely.

Man that stinks about the wool. That would be like me being allergic to cotton. AAAHHHHHH!!

Wow! Blocking makes such a huge difference. It is really beautiful, Tina!

Stinks to be allergic to wool. I am allergic to my wedding ring, which stinks, too. I even had it completely remade using more pure gold. It still breaks out my finger. ::sigh::
