Six days feels like a very long time when I can manage to complete an entire shrug in it.
But there were no gauge issues, no fit issues, not really any issues at all, for which I am grateful, because I got it done.
Then, of course, I was stupid enough to try to wash and block it the night before the wedding to which it was supposed to be worn. This thing is cotton. Guess how long cotton takes to dry? (just a hint: two days later and it’s still a little damp.) I ended up wearing my frost flowers and leaves instead, which looked lovely, I am told.
Oh well. At least I did it.
Yarn: Elann Endless Summer Luna in black, 5 balls
Pattern: Come Cover Me by Solveig Engevold
Needles: US6/4mm Knitpicks Options
Mods: I messed with the stitch count a bit to fit my 14″ arms and my slightly off stitch gauge; I ended up casting on 72 stitches. I also added size 6/0 seed beads to the first increased purl stitch in each cuff.
