Finished my Seraphim!

I finished my Seraphim and blocked it this weekend. Turned out really great!

Showing Lace Seraphim Modeling Showing off Seraphim

Knitted on US 7 (4.5 mm?) Addi Turbos, using Knit Picks Sock Garden in Colorway Zinnia - took most of 5 skeins (and I have just a little bit left over)

No mods, except for some fudging I might have done when my stitch count might have been off. I admit nothing.

I didn't take finished measurements, but it's pretty long on me - I'm 5'4 inches and it reaches from my back neck to just above the backs of my knees, and the wingspan is wider than my arms spread out.

This was a great knit, I quite enjoyed it and found it easy to work, despite my initial misgivings about working lace and reading charts. I've improved in both areas now, and am more adept at 'reading my knitting' too. I don't know if I'll knit it again; I'm not much on knitting the same thing over and over, but I'll definitely be looking at more MimKnits patterns for projects in the future.

Thanks for a great knit, Miriam! :)

WOW, I am impressed with the patience and skill this must have took. I love to create and am just getting into needle felting (more sculptural than clothing) and love the whole aspect of wool/yarn etc. I, however, would never have the patience for such work and am amazed at those who do.
