That was a lot of knitting, but Lido is finished -- I was hoping to get it done before the end of February and I made it (just barely).
Still too chilly and grey for a modeled shot, but done, done, done. Actually though, I still am puzzling a bit over the closure. The pattern calls for I-cord ties affixed to the front edges, but I don't see how they fasten that way in any way except having the front edges meet. However, the accompanying photo shows it being worn with the fronts overlapped, and that is how I want to be able to wear it -- otherwise it looks boxy and a bit big. I have a feeling the solution may involve sewing a couple of snaps, so perhaps I am not entirely done, done, done.
