This piece had several firsts for me. This is the first completed project in the round, first time improvising my own pattern, first short rows, first I-cord, first Kitchener, first pick-up stitches, first completed ML project. I learned a LOT with this pattern. And it's stitched from my first skein of hand-dyed yarn.
