FO - Long Lacy Summer

This is my first completed object for the long lacy summer being held over at Bells







Yarn - The Yarn Cafe sock in Evoke colourway
Needles - KP Harmony Tips 3.5mm on 60cm circ

This yarn is just adorable. I'm so in love with the colourway - it goes with just about everything I wear and although the weather is warming up I'm still getting quite a bit of wear out of it. Being a 4ply it isn't very warm so it's more of a 'pretty' accessory than a warmth thing.
I can't believe how much difference blocking can make although this yarn is a superwash so it has bounced back a little bit. Apologies about the state of my bathroom mirror too - I didn't notice how bad it was until I took these piccies! I've started a few other lacy projects but promptly frogged them - can't seem to find the right combination of yarn & pattern ;-(
