What was your inspiration?
Mostly that it was a Mystery Knit Along and I was between projects. This was fun and helped me do things I'd been reluctant to try on my own.
What are you most proud of?
All of it. I moved outside of my comfort zone, and worked it out. I learned a new cast on method, took on knitting with double point needles (I tend to favor circular ones) and I did cabling for the first time. It's a top down pattern so that was pretty neat too.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
A lot of people said they ran out of the yarn, but I had a bit left over. I kept my stitches fairly tight until I got towards the end, also I did the bind off with larger needles.
