FO: Leafy Liesl

My first FO of Project Spectrum, Leafy Liesl is done!

Details: Liesl, by Ysolda
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool Merino, Leaf Green, 1.5 skeins (from the stash)
Needles: Size 10.5 circular
Time: Would you believe, less than two weeks???!?!?
Recipient: me!

Thoughts: I made mine with the wide neckline option, and I skipped the buttonholes. I like it as sort of open garment, although I think I could block and stretch it to close if desired. I love it.

It's my first lacy garment, and my favorite FO to date. I feel like I say that a lot, which I guess means I'm feeling more confident with each item off the needles. I would definitely make this pattern again, and maybe soon. I offered to make one for Jill and she's intrigued, so who knows?

I've already started a second item for this Project Spectrum season. It's a hat, so maybe I'll have another FO in a week or so.
