It turned out beautifully!
As always, I was nervous about the bind-off--you need just the right amount of elasticity for something like this--but I'm pleased with the results. It gives the appearance of cozy while still maintaining a nice, fluffy light weight.
Thanks, Lucky Ewe Yarn, and Maverick Fiber Company for a clever and chic knitting experience!
Next up, a return visit to our nation's capitol to check out a great DC-area yarn shop.
