12/4/16--Finished the knitting today. Now soaking for a wet block. Unblocked, it’s tiny!

NOTES: I wanted to use every inch of the Brisbane, so I essentially played yarn chicken and kept knitting until I thought I had just enough for the bind off. As it turned out, I got 3/4 of the way through the bind off before I ran out of yarn. Luckily, I had another worsted wool (Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted) in a colorway similar to the color section of Brisbane at the bound edge, so I was able to finish the bind off instead of tinking back 200+ stitches.

5 full repeats and 1 partial repeat (up to row 21) before the garter stitch edging and the bind off.
