Very easy knit. The pattern repeats are short enough that they’re easily memorized, and the rest is just stockinette or garter. The last few rows of garter stitch were quite tedious, but then again I was able to easily watch television since I didn’t have to closely focus on knitting.

Originally I intended on pinning out the picot edge’s points, but I was worried that I would compromise the ruffles. It blocked out to the size I wanted, but within a day it shrank significantly. I’m not thrilled with how bad the colors pooled in the stockinette sections, but I can’t really block it out again in hopes of breaking it up - it’ll just shrink back.
