With three days to Christmas, this BO is on it's way to my mother-in-law in Kansas. I hope she likes it. I am pleased with how it turned out, it's so soft and delicate. The finished piece measured almost 6 feet (after being blocked). I used one skein of KSH in Grace and metal needles for this one, but will probably switch to bamboo for the second BO I'm working on. Thank you for the blocking tips, I've never blocked before and was nervous about which method to use. Now, to finish the second one before my mom's January birthday!
