It's not blocked yet but:

Here it is off the needles, with all the steeks whipped and so on:
Minor crisis when finishing off the steeks. I trimmed the first one down to about 3 stitches like I usually would, and then found that wasn't enough for the slippery alpaca and llama yarns, which slipped and began leaving holes! I think I fixed it, and I didn't trim the other 3 sleeve steeks, just whipped them down. The neck ones are all wool and a little yak, and those I was able to safely trim.
Now I just need a chance to wash and block it.
And I finished the first hedgehog hat today, too:
