I made this for the OWS56 for Banga and she received last Friday so I can post pictures.  I'm actually really proud of it, and it turned out REALLY pretty in person.  If I'd had more time I think it would do with a good steam and a little bit of blocking maybe.  Though, its Caron Simply Soft so I don't know if it blocks well at all. 

Anyway.  This took about three skeins of the CSS, in Grey heather and I managed to do it in about 2 weeks, mostly in my commute, my lunch break and some time at stitch and bitch.


close-up looks kinda blurry this close.

one for size reference.  That's me behind it and I'm 5ft7

Oh Banga is so lucky!  I just love that!  May I ask where the pattern can be found?
