Lotus Blossom Complete!
Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!
How shall I rate this project?
On the up-side:
the yarn - felt lovely - very silky and smooth,
the pattern - was just interesting enough to compel me to knit, but not so impossible to frustrate,
Ravelympics - was a good introduction into the Ravelry community.
On the down-side:
the yarn - was FULL of knots, there was at least 20 in that second skein.
the pattern - went up in large increments size-wise. Hence, it's a smidge on the small side. I'll try to drop a size before next summer.
Ravelympics - well, let's just say I've been reminded why I hate knitting to a deadline. Too stressful. I won't be doing that again.
All in all, I'm delighted it's all over.
I don't feel like knitting at all for a little while and that's just as well, Nigel and Ian have gone to Alaska for a week and I plan to clean the house top to bottom while they're away. Elly and I also have to get her ready for her big move. On September 1st she leaves for three years in Dublin! Now that's some serious packing.
