I really should have been done with this by now but the heat has put me into super slow motion with the yarn. Actually haven't touched this in days now. Hopefully the coolness coming in tonight will encourage me to add some length to this. Its doing a good job of using up some of my leftovers ... actually not some, but all. Nothing was purchased for this. I love it when I can do that and still get something I love out of it. This is certainly a keeper pattern for me.
