Finally cast on

I have started my Autumn Rose after completing my previous project. I love the colors, but I'm not in love with this yarn; I'm finding it very scratchy. I think it will be better once it gets blocked, but I'm a little worried. How has it blocked up for people who have finished the sweater? I'll post pictures once I get to something interesting.

This is the first time I've used this yarn and I had the same concerns. Howeer, after washing and blocking my swatch, the yarn softened considerably. I only used Dawn dish deterent for my swatch but I plan on using a wool wash when the sweater is done so I assume the yarn will be softer after I use a good wool wash on it.

That's exactly what I was hoping to hear. I didn't block my swatch, so I wasn't too sure. Thanks for the help.
