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???
