This is my third time knitting this pattern and it gave me the most grief - i think i frogged the lace border three times before nailing it.
It also took a long time to knit because i took most of the summer off from knitting due to hurty wrists. As a result, this 50th birthday gift is six months overdue oops. I think-hope the recipient likes it though and she's my best friend so forgives my lack of punctuality.
Technical details :: knitted with undyed sock yarn (160 grams of the stuff) and dyed by me with Landscape dyes.
