Holiday lace NFO

Color is not just right on this picture. It was wet and overcast, but I wanted to give you an idea of the pattern and the resulting size. It hasn't been properly blocked either, but I did iron it out a bit. I used size 1 needles and J&P Coats size 10 Royale in Forest Green.

I saw another blogger use the acronym NFO for nearly finished object and I've adopted it. Obviously the knitting is complete, but I haven't added the beads/berries or bow.

As I said, I'm quite in love with this little wreath even though I haven't really a use for it. This pattern has a 1995 copyright date and only uses k2tog decreases. As I was knitting I wondered if perhaps some should be changed to SSKs but I was too inexperienced to tell which ones. Now that it is complete, I still cannot tell. All in all a fun diversion.

Can't wait to see if finished. This cooler weather is putting me in a holiday mode.
