I am almost done with the front panel, but I am not sure the majority of it is working for me. I am finding gaps and pulls now, more than before. I am wondering if going back and fixing it, or trying to, would be wise. I am pretty sure some of it can be blocked out, but the gaps, and some of them will take a lot more tinkering than I would really like.
I finished my Wurm hat as well, and threw it in the wash so I could somewhat block it. The wool is superwash, so it should be fine. There is a picture here of it.
