Ruffle ruffle ruffle

I’m more pleased with it than I thought I would be… as much as anything else it’s a relief to have it off the needles! A round of stitches that takes an hour and a half to knit can become tedious…

The border pattern is one from Sharon Miller’s Heirloom Knitting – a real treasure trove.
