I am absolutely delighted with this finished knit!

I wasn't too crazy about knitting with the yarn itself since I found it a bit stiff and hard to keep gauge with, but it really softened up with a soak. The resulting fabric has a interesting texture and lovely drape.

Overall, it was a fun, quick, and interesting knit that will most definitely get worn!

Tammy, you look awesome! I'm pretty sure I couldn't get away with a pattern like this on my hips, but it's really flattering on you. :0)

You look so great. I'm with Charity. But, I've not seen this look bad on anyone yet, so I may have to knit it just to see. This really flew off the needles.

It's always nice to see when a project fits and gets worn instead of being way off and just time wasted.
