It was primarily a winter project since the heat of July is not the best time to be working on a large project. ;-) For example, it took me about two weeks to bind off and another two weeks to weave in the ends. I just could not bear having this in my lap for more than a few minutes at a time this summer.
I admit that I didn't like this yarn at first. It's dyed black rather than natural, so it's more blue than true black. Also the handle was crackly, if that makes sense... I suspect it was from the dye process, but the yarn is much softer after having a bath.
I am looking forward to wearing this... in January. :-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
