Hi! I've been watching the KAL, but not posting. Bad me. I'm nearly done and I must say this is one of my favorite projects that I've ever done. Stats on mine: Size 10 needles with Malabrigo Red Mahogany, less than six skeins for the 40" bust size. My gauge is such that this is coming out a bit bigger than a 40", which is just what I need! I did the sleeves and collar *before* I did the skirt and I highly recommend this method. The skirt gets a bit mind numbing and it's nice to know that when the skirt is done, you're done except for finishing! Here's a pretty accurate picture of mine color-wise:
And here's my obligatory question: How are y'all binding off? I'm at that point on the skirt and my 62 stitch panels are curling like woah! I'm gonna attempt the k2p2 bindoff in that section next, but this is so lovely I don't wanna screw it up!
