Knitty's Dahlia completed :-)

Here is a slideshow of my Dahlia completed. It came out alright. Somehow the LLI and RLI in the instructions didn't quite work the same as shown on the original pics in Knitty... I got small eyelets for the raglan lines. Anyone else came across the same phenomenon too? Hmm... another thing... the beaded bindoff... as described... never worked either, so I resorted to my good old crochet hook and technique to get the picots neckline and sleeves' edge. I put an i-cord for the empire waist and it works great for me.

Green Dahlia

Well, I had started off the year with a new project. My tweedy light green Dahlia.

:-) I was secretly hoping that the next SKC' KAL would be of the Dahlia and for once I would be able to join one timely... oh well, as it looks like it is falling quite behind Marnie McLean's beautiful designs at the poll. :-) I will post some pics of my project later. To be continued.... :-)
