Thanks!

It took about 3 weeks to knit, but 6 weeks for all the blocking and whatnot. Waiting for the pieces to dry :tap:drives me nuts!

Hey now...don't be adopting more children, ArtLady. You're not gonna have enough time to knit for your first adopted children (i.e. moi).

:teehee:

Beautiful work, as always. You are a generous lady who blesses so many with your wearable works of art.

:hug:
