And with this year's February having 60 days for me, I finished in PLENTY OF TIME, on February 54th. I'm thinking this is a bit longer than I was expecting, but it doesn't cling too hard on this old butt. And I went with a much shorter neck, as high funnel necks really aren't as flattering as I'd like on my neck. Also, itch-factor.
Just checked the weather forecast, and we're heading in to strong spring weather this week, with highs in the high 60s/low 70s, so I might just be modeling this puppy and then putting it in the closet to wait until fall. But it's done. Yay, done! Now to get busy on some of those March Mayhem patterns that have been catching my eye.
Thank you for the impetus, my friends.
