198yrds of Heaven..............

It seems like forever since I've been here, life throws all sorts of obstacles In your way to trip you up but the best thing about life is you can choose whether to stay down or get back up. I'm glad I made the right choice.

I have not knitted in months but I have thought about it so I guess that counts. But I have finally broke the spell and knitted this little beauty. Done with slightly more yarn than the pattern called for to increase the size as the original size was so small, I'm happy I did because the finish size was just right. I ran out of yarn and used another yarn in a slightly darker red to finish the edge I think it gives it depth but that just my opinion. I hope the recipient loves it as much as I do.

Project info
Size 3.5 rpts of body chart
Needle US 8 - 5.0 mm and US 10 - 6.0 mm
Yarn Cascade Yarns 220 Heathers Amt used 220yrds = 1 skeins
Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Amt used 73 yards = .67 skeins

Hopefully I'll be able to finish other things I have started now that I have gotten my knack back. It's so good to be back!!!!!!!!!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
