A Finished Moebius

I did get the Wave of Berries Moebius finished over the weekend and I got it blocked (that was interesting). This morning, to get a good photo for the blog, I recruited our favorite knitwear model (you guys are always asking for modeled shots of the finished pieces), and discovered that he's forgotten how to model knitwear. That and his father was standing behind me waving his arms around, getting the model all riled up. Fortunately, the Moebius is basically a collar and if there's one thing that fits on Finn, it's a collar, so even after getting up and running across the room to Mickael, he was still wearing the Moebius and just needed to be put back into a stay.

Then he decided to lay down (the Moebius works for that too).

Finally, I got him to sit still and got a good picture without making his eyes glow (it's overcast and rainy here this morning). So here are the details - the pattern is the Wave of Color Moebius, knit as the pattern directs. I used US 7 needles (4.5 mm) and my own 3 ply, BFL handspun which was a light fingering weight. This was a fast project and it only took about 350 yards (I can see this being a nice potential gift project). I do have some yarn left over, but I'll show you what I'm doing with that tomorrow, once I finish.

Such a lovely model! The color of the moebius works well with his fur coat. Quite stylish he is.

Lovely photos and Finn is truly in his element - what a great model. However, a question, how do you block a lace mobius? With the twist I can't quite get my head around it. Is there a site that tells you how or is it just your natural brillance.

Yes, please any advice on blocking? I just bought the pattern and am getting ready to cast on...but some advice on blocking would be helpful.
