Here's the finished beastie...
I'm still so pleased with it- and blocking wasn't the nightmare I was anticipating!
Now if I can get up the nerve to try Mmario's "wedding peacock..." hmmmm....!

Great job! After completing this I'd say the sky's the limit - bring on the most challenging pattern - you'll have it mastered in no time.

Many (actually most)

Many (actually most) evenings are spent finding something good to watch on Netflix (lately it's been 24, we're hooked) and sitting and knitting. The evening is punctuated every so often with, "Hey, hon, pause, I need to count," or, "look at this, it doesn't seem right." Even frogging is a little easier when there is another knitter next to you to sympathize and cuss out the offending yarn and or pattern :D
