It is: Beautiful.
It is: Soft.
I LOVE IT.
Knitting this wasn't so much a technical challenge, as an act of persistence. So many colour changes, so many ends, so long. The fringing, which I love, took two evenings.
It is warm, soft and very elegant. I wore it to work Thursday and got exactly the reaction I wanted from knitters (Hi Erin) and non-knitters alike.
Part of this cold rainy weekend will be spent with this on. Sorry I didn't model, all the photos Emma took were really blurry (note to self: camera phone not good. Buy a battery of real camera.)
And yes, Emma love it (she is my daughter afterall). She's going to have to knit her own.
