All the other knitting had been set aside this week in order to finish Feather Duster. The finish line goal for the KAL was today as it's Susan's birthday and I've made the goal just in time! Before leaving to spend the day with friends, I'll taking a few minutes to block this happy, beautiful project. I love this color and the yarn didn't give me many problems (as I thought it might). The repeat is easy to keep in mind, which made it a nice companion in social situations. Lace isn't usually something I usually take out in public, but FD was well behaved.
Susan will be very happy with me as I used up almost every bit of yarn. She loves a project that doesn't leave a bit behind. It felt good come so close. Feather Duster is a beautiful end of summer project…one I'm going to love wearing. Photo shoot this weekend (and Tempest2 might finally get her due, too).
Happy Birthday, Susan! Here's to you, grrlfriend!!
