GORGEOUS!  I'd probably use a nice heavy towel and very lightly iron through it to block.
Wow, that makes me wish I could wear capes!

what a beautiful cape! It seems so delicate and perfect, does it need to be blocked? It looks like it is perfect for the spring with those daisys on it = Fantastic job!!

Does it need blocking?  Maybe a few gentle puffs with the steam iron, but not much more.

It is beautiful, but then, I expect nothing else from you!

Thank you guys!
Yes, it needs to be blocked, just the borders though.
I think I might try it again using size 11's.
beatnik_chik, do you think a damp towel would be best? I just don't want to lose the furry-ness of it! I wonder if I hung it up and steamed it lightly maybe?
I think I'm going to try steaming like Lisascenic said..
thanks again you guys.
Pattern is posted in the free patterns section on my blog if anyone wants it  Cheesy

Really beautiful. The pin is perfect too. So nice!  I don't know what to do with my mohair.  I wish I had gotten nice colors like your batch.  It would practically be a waste for me to do yours in my oyster and putty colored kidsilk haze.

Yes, steaming would be a good idea.   if you're going to iron, I would use a very very lightly damp towel and low heat on the iron.

Wow!  I love your capelet!  It's sooo gorgeous!  Get the drool bucket, 'cause I'm salivatin' big time!  I bought a cone of (itchy) magenta Berroco Mohair Classic on impulse and would love to try this.
