From the minute I started knitting this I was smitten with it and I am even more so now that it's done.......it's not that it was a trial to knit or that made it take so long, quite the opposite really, I blame all my friends who are currently baking up new babies that once born will need wooly knit things, so my need for wooly knit things was pushed aside while I cranked out a bunch of baby objects. However, I pushed thru last night, was up till 11:00 p.m. doing the bind off, up at 4:30 (my normal time don't worry) weaving in tails over my morning coffee while Gabby and Quintus snarfed down their food.
