Good news is the garment has been successfully blocked! Starch does wonders on cables and I'm definitely going to use it in the future for this type of yarn and stitch pattern. Bad news is just as I started to seam the shoulder I spotted [gasp!] an error
smirking at me - near the selvedge was a knit stitch that should have been purl. A couple of rows down and unnoticeable, although it would have showed if the shoulder seam had been viewed from the top. The rows were only thirteen stitches each so I undid them and corrected the error because I know that keeping it there would have bothered me endlessly. Argh.
Despite that little setback, I'm going to start knitting the neckline in the round! I've never knitted a neckline entirely in the round so this is going to be something new. Pray for me, friends.
