PrimeTime KAL - May

So this one I really wasn't sure if it was going to get done, but it actually progressed fairly quickly, despite some issues with the lace pattern (again with the lace). This was an interesting project. The designer's gauge didn't match mine AT ALL so I had abandoned my hopes of doing this, cast on something else. That didn't work - frogged - so went back to my original plan, which was Every Last Yard by Amy Swenson.

It's blocking right now, I can't wait to wear it. I'm always amazed at how nicely lace blocks out. And I never used to do it! (mind you, I never used to swatch either - but don't tell anyone).

I used approximately 1,050 yards of Madelinetosh Tosh DK (I LOVE this yarn, so nice to work with).

Here's my in progress pic

And here it is blocking
