Cardigan for Arwen :(

I finished Cardigan for Arwen this evening.  I got all the ends woven in.  I am disappointed in it.  I did not block the piece. I knitted it in Dream of Color Classy which is a superwash wool.  Since I know that superwash grows I decided not to block the piece.  I figured that I would seam it together and then throw it in the wash. 

I could not visually picture how the piece would seam together.  So I did the obvious first.  I seamed the sleeves first and then the hood.  Next, was the two sides and then finally the across the back.  When I was seaming across the back, the piece ended up not matching up.  So I ended up having to make it fit together. 

When I tried it on, it looked awful.  I figure that it is due to not being blocked and also the piece ended up being short on me.  So I am going to go to Ravelry and do some reading on the yarn as to my next step.  I figure that it is going to go in the washing machine and then what???

    I’ll bet it’s the blocking. I really hope it works out!
