just finished it today after waiting and finally recieving more orange yarn in the mail. just a quick steam blocking and voila! She LOVES it, and so do I... Definitely a rewarding project.

Hello andreacs, tribe and elaineofshallot. welcome.

regarding the weaving; as i PATIENTLY wait for my extra yarn to come in the mail, i have little do but weave in the ends... it actually didn't take long, about 1/2 hour, and in the end its pretty tidy. At the outset, Elisha and I were lamenting having to do this and coming up with lots of strategies to avoid it, but it was not a big deal actually. I would think the problem with carrying the yarn down would be that when you get to the eyelet part, there is an eyelet right where the colors change and the vertical strands might show through through, unless you can tack them to the side around that section or something . its pretty open in those areas, and i had to be very careful when weaving to keep the strands hidden.

glad to have a few more knitters along for this!

How is everyone coming along? I am really almost finished! I just completed my last stripe and just have to do the final border. I added an odd stripe at the beginning so i ended up with the border being not in my main color but in CC3. I'm hoping i have enough orange yarn to finish. When i finished my last green stripe I literally had about 6 inches of yarn to spare. phew!

here's hopefully my last in progress photo, showing the close call in vivid green...

Good luck everyone... I want to see pictures if anyone has any!
