I have had this particular object done for a while now but have been monstrously lazy so haven't posted it here. I am terribly proud of it. The pattern is from the Spring/Summer 05 Edition of Family Circle's Easy Knitting Mag. Its quite simple and works up nicely. I made one error in it, that can't be seen in the picture. Then again, its a crappy pic so not much can be seen. Somehow I did a yarnover and it added a space. I contemplated frogging it back and fixing it, but decided to just let it stay, its in the back, my hair covers it and I had already completely frogged the project once so wasn't keen on doing so again, even if it was only two rows. I am justifying my choice of not frogging with the idea that the mistake/hole makes the whole object an original.
I cannot say I am super fond of the color. I got it from Herschner's when they had a sale so the colors were kinda limited and as I was ordering it online it was hard to tell if I would like the color or not. Usually I have good luck, this time I wasn't quite as fond but it still is a nice color that goes with many of my clothes. Of course, I am so proud of it that I wear it with almost everything no matter if it goes or not. So I guess color really doesn't matter.
Excuse the bad pics. Hard to take anything good when one is taking the pics themselves.
Here is an attempt of a closeup of the ties, they are crocheted flowers and I love them.
