this huge (well you can't tell but it is a big box) of alpaca fiber is going out today!! glad to get rid of it and make someone else happy. traded someone for a yarn i have never tried through a group on ravelry. man you have got to love that site!!!
napoleon is comin along well. i am pretty much finished with the lower back portion. i did the puckers a little differently to help make up for the fact that my gauge is different.
i made the puckers 5 rows of knitting by using short rows so that i wasn't adding too much to the width of the bottom portion. i also made the first 2 puckers 10 stitches long, the 3rd and 5th puckers 12 stitches long, the center one 14 stitches long and the last 2 back to 10 stitches. in the pattern they are all 10 stitches long. i didn't like that. but i liked the way they now form a V. we will see how well that works out for the final look.
