I am ashamed to admit that I stayed up late last night finishing Brambles. I am more ashamed to admit that it was waaaaay too short. So for the first time practically ever I am properly blocking it in hopes that it will improve the fit.
The best part was putting the plate in the wet hat, hehehe. I usually COMPLETELY overlook, even look down on, blocking but in this case I am holding out hope that blocking will be worth it here. Because it would be truly sad and tragic for all that good yarn and work hours to go to waste.
*Update: alas after blocking, though it came out fabulous, it is much too short for my large head (and larger hair). I have quite a bit of the original skein left so I am very tempted to rip it, cast on again, and put my own twist (haha it’s funny because there’s cables) on it to make it accommodate the volume of my head/hair.
