Notes

I am worried about how variegated this yarn is, but I’m powering through!

Final measurements were 73” by 20”.

I initially liked the variegated yarn in the stockinette section but was worried about the lace portions. But after it was done, I like the lace parts more and the stockinette section less… I used less yarn than I thought I would.

Hard to get accurate photos of the color. Probably most accurate in the top picture.
