spine and points

Overall, I’m wicked pleased. Things to think about… one of the YOs is wonky. One of these days I’ll figure out which one in some experimental swatches. I wasn’t able to block out the points as nicely as some others I’ve seen.

But I love the yarn and its color! I blathered all about it on my Ravelry project page.

Spent too much time today going through summer things (do they fit? are they clean?)… getting ready to go to mom’s in Florida (on Wednesday!!!!!).

    Fabulous! I will assume you are bringing that to Fl with you, for those ‘cool’ nights. Great color. This is the second finished Maplewing I’ve seen this week- methinks the knitterverse is trying to tell me something.
