Rav link] by Melanie Lok; knit with one skein of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in colorway 18006 Wine. Thank you to Maisy for keeping her relatively still for the photo shoot.
I consistently had a problem in the later rows of the body sequence; I’d blame the pattern, but it was probably my fault for not paying attention and possibly doing something dumb on the purl rows. I also had to redo the bindoff after the first time through produced unusable and constricted. The elastic bindoff did the trick. The other problem: lots of finagling to get the finished product on her body -- the close fit of the neckband required considerable stretching to go around her shoulders without breaking her arms. I finally had to make her raise both arms and ambush from above!
I love this yarn a whole lot. I've had it forever, since I bought it waaay back when a] I didn't know that most things I want to make use more than one skein; and b] the cost of yarn didn't factor into my purchasing. Anyway, it's like buttah and there's only a yard and a half left.

Cue blocking photos!
Jill Factotum -- thank you!
