the Whisper, she is done!

finished as we pulled into home last night around 11.30pm, although I didn't know it was finished at the time...

Thanks to a very understanding partner who agreed to drive the 4hr round trip we made yesterday, I was able to knit the whole way.

It wasn't until this morning though that I measured my progress and found that I was exactly on the required length and could therefore cast off!  (So I guess, technically, I didn't finish til this morning, when I bound off the bottom hem)

Black wool is so very hard to photograph accurately, as many of you will know and agree.  this was the best I could manage.  The first photo is the most accurate for colour, which is a deep inky blue-black with flecks of cobalt and tan.   The second two photos show a little more of the details - I love the spiral drape of the front edges.

Overall, this pattern was a pleasure to knit, and it fits like a dream!  I can't wait to get some wear out of it in the coming weeks, before the weather turns too chilly.

and of course, I can't wait to cast on something new!!

I feel I have to say I told you so! Hurrah for a lovely FO. I hope we'll get a modelled shot some time?

it's lovely. I'm sure it'll look great on you. Don't you love a partner who is happy to do all the driving?
