Drum roll please........

Angela Wrap by Sharon Miller.

Cherry Tree Hill Merino Lace colour Java.

Cast on either 7 or 8 January 2007

Knitting completed 27 January 2007

That's less then three weeks on the needles !!

I had a slight false finish on the grafting, I grafted and then realised that I should have done one row less plain knitting for it to balance at both ends.

So I ungrafted, unknitted and then re-grafted

This is one of the ends.

I did the centre pannel shorter than the suggested 15 repeats, so my version has 10 points and is the right length for Shorty Sue ;-)

I had a little helper while I was blocking, he was such a good boy didn't try and lie on damp wool.....

I think a full blown Philharmonic, with extra kettle drums.

Gorgeous piece of work (and I hate you for being so quick - how is the O.U. work?).
