Revontuli finished at last!

Revontuli

Well, nearly. I haven't blocked her, but isn't she beautiful.

I've said it before but I'll say it again this pattern was an absolute joy to knit. It made such absolute sense. And the yarn is fantastic. I only used one skein. If I had had the time I would have liked to carry on working more increases and making it larger again. But at least this way I still have another skein of Evilla to use elsewhere.

I got carried away taking 'arty' photos so please humour me.

"Too close?" Can artsy photos ever be too close? :-)
