and so it's finished!
This is my first stranded project in a long time. It is my first two handed stranded knitting ever. I am quite happy with the results.
I can see a difference in the evenness of the stitches in the body and the sleeves. The sleeves are more even with less bumps and both the background and the design color are more defined. So I guess practice is the key.
I love red, red is my favorite color and my favorite ever red combined with black. So here we have it!
I have to find buttons or clasps for it, the string that is hanging from the bottom is temporary I basted it to close it and get it on the wooly board.
