I really love how this came out. It's so perfect, and I really think it will go well in the bride and groom's home.
This thing grew about 10cm each way after blocking. I don't have blocking wires, so to block this I decided to try using spare yarn like the Yarn Harlot for the first time. I still need some practice at it, but it was much easier than using all my pins to try to get a straight line on all four edges.
All things told, this was a very enjoyable knit. Everything went smoothly, and it took about 9 days total, spread out over the last 3 months, so I never had real stress about making the deadline.
