Pictures of Finished Sontag

I finished this for the Harper’s Ferry event in November, but I never posted photos of the sontag itself. I found this a very relaxing knit. Although it’s a lot of simple back and forth basket weave stitch, I didn’t think that was boring. The only issue I had with this project was a problem I made for myself: I almost ran out of the grey yarn I was using for the edging. I was trying to use stash yarn for this project, and I had about 1/2 of a ball of Paton’s Merino that I thought would work for the edging. But turns out I badly miss-estimated how much yarn I would need. I got by through crocheting slightly fewer scallops than called for (which I may have needed to do anyway, as I was getting a looser gauge than expected), but I still only had a yard or so of grey left in the end.

    • Thanks! Knitting is pretty addictive, so I find I can’t do it much when I’m trying to be productive with sewing.

      And thanks for the mother of pearl button!
