What a wonderful weekend so far! Despite the end of a six year relationship, I have truly remained friends with an important person in my life. Keeping with tradition, Tully and I enjoyed an amazing Thanksgiving with friends at the "Pink House" on Wilbur Street in Pacific Beach. While last year brought over 30 people, this year was just as fabulous with the fifteen or so that gathered together on a warm, sunny day.
Even though I didn't manage to finish Juliet for the festivities, it was great watching the rest of Lost - Season Two in marathon fashion, while finishing my knitting.
Unlike any of the previous Zephyr Girls' patterns, this one was a bit wonky on the sizing. I started with a small and increased to a medium to allow addequate arm room. Unfortunately, I should have decreased back down to a small, or even an x-small. The bottom part looks a bit wonky as the lace portion is too full. You can't reallly tell by the pics, since I'm holding it in in the back. I will either gift this beauty to my mother, or try ripping it back (are you there sweet Brandi? lol) to the gartter stitch portion, where I'll make that a little bit longer, decreasing it to an x-small or small before starting the lace repeats. I will still do the seven and 1/2 pattern repeats for the length.
