It’s not so much that I’m overwhelmed with pride over the design itself (though I do love it), it’s the fact that I actually, finally finished the sample after almost a year. Seriously, I cast this on last March (maybe late February?) in the hopes of having it ready for the June TNNA. Clearly, that didn’t happen. But, last week, I did finish it and am now working on the pattern.
Thus, I give you a sneak peek of Rhea Silvia, just to prove that I actually did get it done:
Ha! Friends and family will recall that this is the project I called the “Circular Scarf of DOOOOM”, since I had to rip back so many times as the pattern evolved.
Incidentally, the name comes from the ancient Roman goddess of the forest (or, alternately, the mother of Romulus and Remus), Rhea Silvia. Mostly because the cables make me think of knots in trees :)
Once Caulking (and a couple of others) are done, this’ll be up in a snap. Honest!
