Cast off early and now blocked


Casting off early as I panicked about size was a mistake *blushes* but not one that makes it unwearable.

The photo above was supposed to show the subtle colours in the yarn, some lovely purple and green in there when you look closely but they just will not photograph. I have grown to like the yarn more as I have knitted and I now have 2 skeins left due to casting off after 2 1/2 repeats.

Finished size 67" x 33" 2 skeins of PY Emily in Frost Flowers colour.

I am going to do another larger one for me and to give this one to my Aunty who has just been diagnosed with cancer - something warm and lovely to wrap herself in when she needs a hug.

O, that is so beautiful! I must admit I'm a bit jealous, that looks great. The colour is gorgeous, and the lace up close looks absolutely perfect. Well done, you must be very proud of yourself.

What a lovely thought giveing it to your Aunty. I'm sure it will give her many hours of pleasure and comfort.
