Here is my progress so far, I think I have another repeat of the 4 chevron lace rows to reach the 3 inches required and then I can do the purl ridges. Then I will try it on and keep my fingers crossed!
My back order came this morning from Scandinavian Knitting Design. It is my Fabel 677. I had thought there was more purple in it, but the colour is still very nice, quite turquoise-y.
But now I have to get on with my Excel course, I only have until the 20th to finish it.
