Blankie done

It's done! I didn't quite beat Yoda* to the punch, but the blanket did manage to get done before the trip to Whitehorse, so that's all that really matters to me.

Now, I've never been one to block a knit before, in fact Dad's sweater was the first time I ever did. But I had heard that with lace patterns, it really helps...plus I wanted the blanket to be just a smidge bigger, so I tried a wet-block. What a difference!!
