I thought I was going to have a finished item to show you today, but the lace edging is taking a wee bit longer than I thought it would, so I will finish it up this evening. This is a fun knit! Watching the dainty edging grow as you bind off is so interesting. I had my doubts that I had it right at first, but after 2 repeats...I saw that I had it. :)
I am working on Spiralucious for my son's girlfriend. (No, she doesn't read the blog that I am aware of, so it's safe to discuss). I dyed the colors to match both of the gifts that Miles bought for her.....a dark brown jacket and a light blue fleece from Northface. She is very fair, so I dug into those pastels that I usually steer away from.....I went for a very soft blue and taupey brown. The blue is actually much softer than in the picture. The only modification I have done was to make it a bit longer by adding an extra repeat on the second chart.
I will hopefully get it blocked and modeled by one of my grrls tomorrow :)
