I took a really long time to finish this. I started it in July and put it away for a while. Picked it up again in October and put it away again. I just didn’t enjoy knitting it, but didn’t want to rip it as this yarn had been knitted and ripped about three times. The yarn is considered sock yarn. I tried three different patterns and felt the yarn was too thin and weak for socks. So I persevered and I’m glad I did. This January I looked at it with different eyes. The knitting process flowed effortlessly and this is the end result! Fabulous!
