Yesterday after I blogged and surfed the Internets a bit, I got to work on Pattern 15. I got quite a bit done on it and I'm now 2/3 of the way through what's been charted so far. I've also switched to 40 inch long cables on my needles and you can see, they're too short to spread out the stitches. What I have right now will block to 8-9 inches wide when measured from the neck edge, so I'm figuring I'll have about 12-15 inches of width by the time I finish up the chart and start the ruffle. Did I mention there will be a ruffle? Oh yes, there will be a ruffle. It will be a serious ruffle. A capital R ruffle. The kind of ruffle that doesn't mess around. The kind of ruffle that eats entire skeins of yarn for breakfast. But don't worry, it won't be a fussy, little girl kind of ruffle. It will be beaded and dramatic - a ruffle with a Spanish accent - you'll love it!
My current goal is to finish up the charted section this weekend and then it's onward to the Ruffle!
