Note from Janet: I will not be making another one of these any time soon!! I love the pattern and the yarn (it's Malabrigo, so that goes without saying!) but it took me forever, or at least it felt like it! Since it is lace yarn on small needles (although I used #5 which is 2 sizes bigger than the pattern called for) I felt like I wasn't making any progress when I'd work on it for short amounts of time. I'm happy to be done and now I can just enjoy wearing it!
