Since you asked...and a finish

Here is a close up of the hibiscus and shells on the chest of drawers. No, I did not draw them myself. However, I did do the layout. The shells were from one book and the hibiscus from another. A little playing with paintshop and viola! I'm not so good at drawing, but I give good layout.

I'm almost embarrassed to show this F.O. Ahhhh...what the heck! Hopefully my mistakes will help someone else. It's supposed to be Absorba from MDK.
I haven't done the finishing on it yet. I believe I bound off too tightlysince it kind of pulls and puckers. You might also notice the 3 or so holes. KNIT LOOSELY. Really. It was hard to pick up the stitches and I missed some.
It was fun and quick and there is nothing wrong with the pattern. I'll see what happens when I wash it and stretch it out a bit. I'm not going to sew in the ends until I do so.
