Don't know what blocking is... You can find a cool article here from knitty.com! Basically you get a piece of fabric wet (or steam it, or spritz it with water) and pin it out to the shape you want it to be, then wait for it to dry.
It turned this wonky piece of fabric into a blanket!
I'm really happy with how it turned out. Though the blanket itself is bigger than i expected it to be. I think the pattern said the small version would be a 38inch square mine turned out to be about a 42 inch square.
Only one complaint about the pattern, the yarn requirement was way off... It called for 4 balls of each color. To be safe i bought 5 of each and ended up going back and getting an extra ball in each color and i still ran out of the cream, i think i was 3 rounds short, but you can't really tell. So 12 balls total... that's a lot of yarn.

Today was somewhat nice out and we went out to play for a bit. Chloe loves swinging and went for the better part of a half an hour.
Leah was running around and just having fun.
Gabe and Joe were playing baseball. I can't wait for spring to really be here. When we can wear not a coat but a t-shirt or I'll even go for wearing only sweatshirts... I can feel it, spring is coming i just need to have a little patients and endure the cold for a bit longer.
