Well it's being blocked anyways. I finished it last night and have it blocking now.
I am really happy how this turned out. I used a lighter weight yarn (Frog Tree Yarns sport weight alpaca) than the directions called for and stayed with the size US8 needles (Denise Interchangeable) which made it lighter weight and airy. Here's some pictures of it being blocked with some closeups of the lace pattern. Now I have it for the Sea Sock cruise to Canada. Yeah!!!
Later today I'll let you know what just came in yesterday... or you can check it out at The Knitting Hutch New Arrivals.
