Yes, I blocked it, but it wasn't so easy. I soaked it in the bathtub, and then shaped it on layered towels on the bathroom floor. When the kids actually had to use the bathroom and it had dried a little, I moved it to the kitchen floor. I let it dry there until my cat decided it was a comfy place to sit. I then moved it to a table on my sun porch, where it is has been since. Maybe it will be 100% dry today, but it is raw and cloudy, so I'm not so sure.  So far, it has made a good rug and a good table cloth. I hope it makes a good sweater, but I'm not sure where I'm going to keep it. It definitely will not fit in a drawer. I'll post photos as soon as it is dry and I put it on.

Wow, I'm late! I'm hoping to knit this for myself.
But I'm a little confused by the yardage - the pattern says 15 balls are used. But not completely used right? Does anyone know the actual yardage for it?

I still haven't gotten around to blocking. But a friend of mine tried it on, and he looked very amusing in it, to say the least. Not every guy can pull off a technicolor bolero.

I found this thread here and thought I'd post pictures of mine...it's been finished a while.  I finally put a button on.  It's getting really cold here but I almost want to keep my putting my daughter in this because I made the whole thing for her.  She doesn't mind that one sleeve is kinda longer than the other.  It's cute.  I used very soft and fuzzy cloud 9 yarn.  In only 5 colors.
It's a little small and she's only not even two yet so it won't fit for long!  darn!

It shouldn't be a big deal to move the sleeves' placement.  Start looking into Elizabeth Zimmermann books on afterthought pockets and the like.  You could use a similar technique. Smiley  Get the sleeves off the current armholes, seal them up with another length of yarn like you did for with the waste yarn while knitting, then figure out the placement of the new arm holes, snip and work in according to EZ's instructions.

i finished mine! it is slightly modded to be a bit larger so it will fit my 4 and a half year old sister. i also made the sleeves long enough to cuff so that they will fit her for at least another year... i hope...



sorry for the huge pics >_<
