I have knit the entire piece over the weekend. I am currently working on the embroidery on the front and back of it. Originally in the pattern the back design was supposed to be done as you knit it but I decided I wanted to knit easy and not worry about color changes and color blocking so I am doing duplicate stitch on it. The yarn I have used for this I would not normally use as it is simply soft by caron (acrylic). At least it isn’t the type of acrylic that makes my skin crawl to touch which most of it does. It was from my Mother in laws estate and well I wanted to make it as a remembrance from her to me. I have a few more scanes in other colors that I may end up making projects in. Most of her acrylic yarn I gave to my children so they could make things for them selves out of grandma’s stuff.
