I finished this (for the second time!) a couple of weeks ago, but it took me a while to actually get pictures taken. Guys, I love this so much better now that it's hip-length. I've already worn it to work twice, and around the house a couple times.
I ended up adding three total lace repeats to the length, and it hits exactly where I want it to now. I also threw in a slip stitch crochet reinforcement around the inside of the neckband to give it a bit more stability-I love this neckline, but it felt a little too stretchy, and I didn't want to worry about it sagging out off my shoulders. It's so much easier to wear now, and I can really appreciate how comfortable it is. I'm pretty sure I've worn it more in the past three weeks than I did in the previous three and a half years, so this was definitely a great fix.

Anybody have exciting plans for this weekend? Mystic was a champ at the vet the other day, but he's having trouble leaving his paw alone, so we'll be snuggling a lot so I can keep him from irritating it, and I have a bunch of yarn to start winding up for upcoming projects. I also stocked up at the university library, and am currently in the middle of The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage, which I started reading a few years ago online, and am finding every bit as enjoyable and engaging as I did the first time.
