Eden - Post Blocking

And here is Eden after blocking.  I did not do a full wet block, I just didn't want to wrestle that much wet wool.  Instead I laid it out on my blocking board and sprayed it to dampen it.  It doesn't saturate the way full wet blocking does, but that also means that I didn't flatten out the front edging and it dried quickly.
For comparison, here is the shot of the front before blocking.
Spraying is a bit more time-consuming but I do like the results.  I don't need the blocking to even out my knitting, just to open things up a little.

Pattern:  Edin by Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn:  madelintosh Pashmina Worsted in Kilim
Needle:  US 7 (4.5 mm)
