Ta-da!

Ta-doh :-(
Never knit when you're tired. Something went horribly wrong near the top of this between bedtime on Friday night and Saturday afternoon at mum's, so I spent all last night pulling out and re-knitting. Just when I thought I'd sorted it out, I noticed that the second and third rhs triangles (up from the rib and next to the lacy bits) didn't go to a proper point, like the first one. So now I've pulled out two thirds of the work above. Grr. Perfectionism is a curse.

Makes you wonder though, maybe Penelope wasn't doing her best to remain faithful to Odysseus, maybe she was just a neurotic weaver.

Its the back of a waistcoat. The yarn changes shades every so often, hence the slightly stripy look. When its done, I plan on wearing it over a white shirt and black pencil skirt. With black high heels, of course!

You do have patience. I would have tossed it by now, lol. It's going to be lovely though.
