Done done done done done and I never have to look at the loathsome thing again.
Tomorrow I am mailing it to Australia.
YARN: Handmaiden Mini Maiden (50/50 wool/silk, 546 yds/100g skein), in colorways Peach Blossom and Jade. I used all of the Jade and about 60% of the Peach Blossom, so about 850 yards total.
PATTERN: Daybreak by Stephen West. With . . . modifications, shall we say? I worked 27 stripes instead of the 20 called for in the pattern, only 5 garter ridges instead of 7, and worked the border in the main color instead of the contrast.
NEEDLES: US 1/2.25mm (pattern calls for US 4/3.5 mm).
