Pattern: Juliet by Zepyr Style
Yarn: Handpaintedyarn.com Merino Bulky
Needles: size 10.5
Size: small

Love the yarn, it is super soft and squishy! It was a pretty quick knit (about 4 days). Learned and important lesson: knitting lace and tequilla-based drinks while watching a movie is a very bad idea.

Love it! I am working on mine now (there is a KAL going in the Knit Along forum). I really like your button placement too. It has been interesting to see all the different ways people have done the buttons.

I don't think the tequilla affected your knitting, it's lovely! Looks great on you.

Yep, yep, do not drink and knit :clink: But if it had any bad effects, we certainly can't tell. Very cute! :thumbsup: How many balls of yarn did you use?

I did have to frog one of the lace repeats after the tequilla knitting!

I think I used about 2.5 skeins of the handpaintedyarn bulky merino. There are 165 yards in a skein. I love ordering from them. I bought 3 and they dyeing was so consistent that I did not even alternate skeins. (I had to do this with an orange colorway from them).
