Another one off the needles!

Just finished binding off Grand Teton! Still needs to be blocked to actually look good ... then it'll bear a far greater resemblance to this. The picot bind-off was downright evil to do (for each three stitches it's necessary to add two more and then bind those off as well) ... you can't see the result yet because that's the long curved edge that's curling up right now, hiding every one o' those durned picots, but they'll show in all their fancy-edged glory after blocking. When I get around to that step. ;p

And one wouldn't normally use a high-contrast colourway like "Belgian Chocolate" for this type of project but I rather liked the idea of having a stratigraphic effect in a design inspired by mountains. It works. :-)


Next in line:

"Vicious Penguin"
plus "Goth to a Flame"
will equal Zephyr Cove (with "Goth for the lacy edge)
