We've talked about this before, I think, where the key to finishing something is working on it.
I started this in October 2013. The pattern is Targetty (rav), by Melanie Berg. I bought it as part of the K*tog (knit all stitches together) package of patterns to benefit people affected by the tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma. I finished it this weekend, after a car wrecked my kids' former daycare, binding off at a baby shower for my in-law's. You can only follow so many connections, before eventually, one will take you out of the tunnel.
The yarn is Cascade Heritage Silk. The pattern was nice to knit - simple enough. The rows at the end were super long, which made it kind of sloggy there.
I didn't make the increases in the same style as in the directions, but whatever. I like how it came out. It is definitely not mistakeless, but should stay put together with normal wear and tear.
When I finished it, it reminded me of someone sweet, so I gave it to her mother.
