#61 of 365 - and Another One Done
I started and finished 198 Yards of Heaven. So called as the pattern is suppose to use less than 200 yards of yarn. I knit this one with the remainder of the yarn from the Yvaine Meets Ishbel that I finished the day before yesterday.
I had only about 5 feet of yarn left after casting off, it was that close...
Here's the obligatory photo of a part of me, pinning out a point in the lace.
I have already cast on for another one, this time on big needles with 5 strands of yarn held together. The yarns are the VERY last of the stash I had from my Mum's Needlework Shop. They are comprised of a silk and wool, a cotton chenille, a cotton with a metallic wrap and a slubby mohair. The only change I will make to the pattern is on the edging lace motif. I will stocking stitch the points instead of doing them, as the pattern states, in garter stitch.
