It's just off the hook now, so no picture. I think I'll give it a good steam to release the fibers. Picture will be posted later.
I'm not sorry this is off the hook at all. I learned a few things about myself while making this.
1. I don't like long projects, and while this wasn't long in duration, it could have been and maybe it would have gotten completed, maybe not. 46 rows and round and round. A very dense pattern, 95% of this was a stitch in a stitch, very little lacy business going on, however it is a beautiful pattern, I used 4/5 skeins of yarn 4 new ones and 1/2 of stash.
2. Ordering patterns....don't usually do it, for a very good reason. That won't change. If I hadn't paid for the pattern, I may have just given up.
There are a few little life's lessons from this project.
The point is, I perservered and got it done. It is lovely. I didn't do the very last round, I was playing yarn chicken and knew I didn't have enough to go all the way around. I had a new skein in the ready but chose to not use it to end this project. I'll have a full skein for future use.
I have ordered some new yarn, for the project I am trying to design. It is a DK 3 lighter yarn, and hopefully won't be so bulky as the first one I fashioned up. I didn't frog it, using as the pattern.
So that yarn should come tomorrow. It will be a kinder, gentler pattern.
Time to get supper started.
Talk with you again soon.
