Dream Stripes REALLY done!

So blocking worked it's magic on lace once again. (I love how this always pleases me...)
I love the combination of stripes and the lace edge on this - I also love how much the MadTosh fingering weight grew, and I didn't really stretch the lace like I've done in the past.

(sorry - I forgot to take my usual before and after measurements)

the points really got, well, pointy - and again, without a huge amount of stress.


I'd like to thank our pumpkins for stepping in to model, as my mannequin is otherwise in use right now...


The blocking pictures really show the actual colours fairly well on this. Who would have guessed that fluorescent lights would show the real colour better than sunlight?

Very nice. I like the pale blue, it reminds me of the early morning sky.

The stormy dreamy colours against the orange pumpkins are very Halloween-chic!

Love love love.
