Design Element

I knew I’d run out of the gray yarn. But, I had seen a project on Ravelry that had a contrasting color edge so I went with that. It looks better than I thought it would. I’ll see if I can find some time and space to block this later today. I’m so glad it’s done. I don’t even remember why I decided to knit it. Hopefully once it’s blocked I’ll fall in love with it again.

    I think that works perfectly with the stripe theme. Once it’s blocked you’ll have the opportunity to actually enjoy it!

    I use that “design” feature all too often!!! LOL Can’t wait to see it done. It reminds me of mine. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/braeburnknitter/sothia I used two patterns together to create the shape and look. Cladonia and Sothia.
