Tonight I cast this off, wove the ends in and washed it as the pattern says. It is now drying on a towel. I am deciding whether to attach beads to the points, as they aren't obvious at the moment. I love the shape of it. As I said on a previous post, this is from a "one skein" book. The ball of wool I used had more yardage than the one specified, but I had to scour the web for a second one of the same shade. I must have knitted looser or something.
However, I am really pleased with the shape of it. The rest of the second ball will be used to make gloves in a few weeks I think.
I have almost completed all the projects I wrote down at the start of the summer break, so am quite happy. The back bedroom project is slow, but part of the reason for that is because I had to pay the excess after I was run into in my car at the start of the holidays.

In the picture Spark is inspecting my work, I just put it on the floor for ease whilst taking the photo. I will take another picture tomorrow after it has dried, and after beads are attached, if I decide it needs them.
