I had a hard time fitting it on the ottoman which is my makeshift blocking station. (good thing I bought blocking pads with no wear in a small apartment to put them!) It did open, but since it's asymmetrical, I question the size, the wearability for most etc. but I do like it. I just have a tendency to pick at things sometimes.
When I went to visit my parents out in the East Bay for a family BBQ, I took these photos in their backyard. Yay for natural light! Yay for a backyard!
Sigh, I really do love this pattern. Very easy peasy. As you can see, from the detail, it's truly lovely with the different textures. I saw it knit in a variety of colors and even an ombre yarn on Ravelry. So pretty. I will knit it again. Maybe in the spring...
But now, it's time for fall knits. I picked up the baby sweater for my cousin. I hope she likes this blue and gray combination. At this slow rate, I might have an FO in 2 weeks.
ps: I just want to thank all of you for the nice words about my snotty situation last week. I know it was just a cold, but I really appreciate the kindness.
