That is wonderful Buttermilk  :trophy:  so beautifully executed.  It makes me want to give up my pathetic efforts.

That's beautiful and unusual for being dark.  Must have been really difficult to see the stitches.
We're always too self-critical with our handwork, there's not that many people would have the patience.
 I heard someone complaining to an indie dyer that fingering weight yarn took too long to knit an adult sweater and she should only dye DK.

Using a head torch made the stitches easy to see :)
