Ladies and gentlemen, may I present: Ten Weeks of my Life!
It was knit mainly on #2 needles using a blend of cashmere/silk yarn that I reclaimed from a sweater.
This is a close-up of the "feather & fan" lace edging on the bottom and top:
Was it complicated? Not really. Did it just about kill me? Yes. Because I can't count.
So then, because I was inspired by my crocheting friend Carole who was making flowers at Tuesday Night group recently, I added this nifty little flower detail:
The bow in the middle of the flower is cleverly disguising the embarrassingly mistake-riddled construction of the flower itself. Did you know that a yarn-over doesn't automatically include a knit stitch after it? Yeah, I do now.
Overall, I think I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I'm mostly pleased that I managed to stick with something for so long. I think I'm going to line it and wear it in public if I can get over how slinky it is. I like its 1930s appeal.
