What materials did you use? I ordered the wool for this from Blarney Woollen Mills in Ireland. It's the mill we all visit when we go over to Kiss the Blarney Stone. They have just one yarn in one size and 3 colours but one of them was just what we wanted

What are you most proud of? The finished blocked measurements, fit and drape are exactly what I designed and knit for thanks to what I've learned here and the swatching.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? wash and block your gauge swatch and trust it as you knit
