Trellis (Adriana)

I managed to get a lot of knitting done in the past few days thanks to getting sick (some weird flu that gave me migraines). While watching the sixth season of Buffy I finished Trellis!
I was too excited to show it off that I didn't wait to block it.

Pattern: Trellis
Yarn: Nashua Superwash in Charcoal
Needles: 4mm
Started: February 10, 2008
Finished: February 16, 2008

Comments: I remembered reading somewhere that most people did it with four buttons instead of 5 so I did the same. I knit the two fronts at once, and did the same with the sleeves.
I'd read some worrying comments about this yarn on Ravelry (unfortunately after I'd already bought it) so I put the swatches through the washer and dryer, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how well it held up. Hopefully this will bode well. I also went down a needle size to help. The yarn was very nice to work with.

It's a good thing this sweater is so darn cute because I didn't have that much fun with the cables.
Ev requested a hat to match so I made one with a seed stitch border. It took me about 2.5 hours in total. Gotta love baby sizing :)

Any suggestions for how best to block this sucker?
