It's done - finally! I never re-knit the same design again, except in this case. The yarn is much better suited to this project, IMHO - it blocks much better and retains its shape. The knitting went so much faster this time around. As usual, part 1 was a drag, but once that was done, the work just zoomed along and voila, here "she" is.
Yarn: Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere in Cashmere Blue Needles: US size 5 5 pattern repeats and 12 10-row repeats in part 1 Finished size: approx. 8" x 78"
