Cute huh? Hard to tell on the screen but it is a pretty green color.
Ok, that is not the end of this story. In fact, it has a sad ending. Things would have been peachy if I had used a nice wool yarn. Alas, I used a wool blend (really, only a touch of wool, mainly acrylic). This type of yarn does not block well and will not hold it's blocked shape. I know this, but for some reason hoped it would be ok.
As I wore it, it slowly unblocked and reverted to it's pre-blocked state. I hated to do it but I unraveled the bottom section, removing the floral border. I am almost done reknitting per the pattern instructions. Sigh...lesson learned.
