My Rogue is nearly finished (I just need to set and seam the sleeves), and I'm wondering how to block the hood. It puckers a little where I've decreased. Any advice? Thanks!

Perhaps in the same manner as a hat. I've used one of my smaller mixing bowls, turned upside down, spritzed hat with water, let dry overnight.

Ooohhh, I can't wait to start mine! Just haven't received any replies from girlmyauntie regarding CC payment options .

My darn company's firewall was preventing email replies from girlfromauntie, so fortunately I'll be able to purchase the pattern soon via Paypal .

Have you tried blocking the hood yet?

I tried to do the mixing bowl method you suggested, but couldnt' find anything with the right shape :( Soooo, I basicall just flattened the decreases out over the small end of my ironing board and steamed it a lot. I still have one sleeve to attach and sew up the hem. I hope you get the pattern soon!
