progress temporarily stopped on the Girasole

I started this in May and worked on it until acute asthma kicked in and I had to put it away until breathing is normal again. Just thought I'd post the pic of when I stopped a few weeks ago. This is a wonderful pattern to knit. No mistakes after I realized that markers every 16 stitches were a must for me. Tinking 640 sts a couple of times was a nightmare.
The yarn is from my friend's alpaca farm and is 8 ply 80% alpaca/20% Merino wool. I can hardly wait to get back to knitting this. It is much prettier in person. I think it would be gorgeous as a shawl in sock yarn, too.
