I have many things to discuss here, but instead, I have FO pics!
This is the Dream Swatch, fairly heavily modified.
I did 3 repeats instead of 4. I wrapped the yarn 4 times instead of 3. And I made it just big enough for my head, and seamed it up into a circle. The yarn is one of the KH colorways from Blackthorne Fibers.
And apparently, it's fall. The students are back, that fall feel is in the air, it gets dark early, and the leaves
have started changing colors.
