In which Ms H. is always right

So, this was a belated birthday knit for Ms H.
I loved knitting it, the yarn is a delight as always, and it was the perfect cool-down project after the long haul of Peacock Feathers. Best of all, it was very well received (always a relief, eh gift knitters?).

Didn't get the opportunity to get many photos of this one (I really want to rustle up a mannequin or dress form to help with FO photo shoots), but that's not always what matters.

Pattern: Silk Kerchief by Kate Gagnon (rav link)
Yarn: Fleece Artist Merino 2/6 (unknown colours)
Needles: Addi Lace 3.5mm
Start: July 14, 2009
End: August 7, 2009
Modifications: Madelinetosh inspired ruffle (rav link), but with an increase of 2 stitches per 3, instead of 1 per 2, just for that extra ruffle ;)
Verdict: Thumbs up across the board in every single department. No complaints. I kind of want one now for myself...

You're a dork. But that's why I'd keep you. Looks great! I really like that ruffle, but I don't think it does much for you, what with the facial hair and all.
