Lacy Wrap - Finished!

I finally finished the wrap pictured above. It took me nearly a year to knit it, because every time I made a mistake I ended up ripping the whole thing out and starting over. Believe me, I tried to fix the mistakes without starting over, but I just couldn't do it. I literally started this thing over 12 times! So a year and a few months later it is finished (blocked and button sewn on, too!)And today is the perfect day to wear it!
I tried taking a picture of me wearing it, but the lighting is no good today (totally overcast). And I'm too excited to wait another day and try again.
The pattern is SAVOY Lacy Wrap. The yarn I used was ZARA in Midnight Blue.

Broken

Last year, I saw this super cute wreath on Ducks in a Row. (This is her picture, I did not get a good one of my own.) :(


I loved it so much I made my own. It looked terrible in our rental house, so it was hung in the laundry room. In the post about my wreath, I hoped for a better place to display my wreath this year. Well, I have a better place, lots of them, actually. I hung it up and it looked all cute, for about 20 minutes. Then it crashed to the floor and the styrofoam base broke into a bunch of pieces and the candy corns went flying. That was the end of my wreath.
I am undecided as to whether or not I will make another.
