Ta dah! It's done! This is Ice Queen, with beads and picot edging and everything! And even better, the weather is cooling down so I should be able to wear it soon :)
I'm pretty pleased because for the first time ever the provisional cast on WORKED - I was able to easily unravel the cast on edge, and it left proper live stitches - i can't of course remember what I did, so this may be a one off, but hopefully something will have sunk in and I can get it right again!
A new painting has been sketched out - my first attempt at painting fair isle, wish me luck! I'm featuring the Tam that I knit for my SIL Deb's birthday earlier this month.
And something that I just love - the lace shadows that are cast on my window sills ... they always make me smile.
