ok, I took my own challenge too seriously. I wanted to finish this cardigan so badly that I stayed up until 1130 on Sunday night just to be able to say I finished it this weekend. Now, it's a quarter to midnight and I am posting one pick (just one, wearing the cardigan over my pajamas)
As you can see, I went with the arrow lace pattern around the front bottom edges, picot bind-off on the turned front, and absolutely no blocking has happened at this point. BUT IT'S DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
