Today I have for you the second of my Ravelympics2008 projects. In the rare event (or so I thought) that I was able to finish the cabled scarf I decided to cast on Liesl. A good portion of my Thursday night knit group (KnitGang TM) is making, has made or will make/receive the Liesl. Once they are all done we are going to do a fashion show to showcase it on all our various body types. 🙂 I will admit, this FO has one tiny thing to be done. I need to add a hook & eye to the top but I have already worn it twice without that. To do the hook & eye I need to get in touch with the boy’s aunt and ask her what type we used on my princess dress because those were awesome. 🙂
