Ahoy, Success!

I love it when a plan comes together.

It may not look like much (taken, as it was, without a flash using my phone, and then hastily "snipped" because I haven't got round to d/l'ing paint.NET - yes, this is the same navy garment I blogged about yesterday) but it represents a  triumph for me.

I have been thinking about how to create this for a long time. I tried what I had decided, which was sort of short rows - I knitted four rows in white on these stitches, Kfb into the first and last stitch to avoid curling on the advice of someone on Ravelry. It didn't quite look as I I stitched the top white row together with the bottom white row, et voila! The piped effect I had been hoping for. I can't stop looking at it, because it's so straight and perfect.

(Please ignore those wonky stitches at the end, the rest of it makes up for it in my eyes).

I haven't been quite so obsessed with a knitting project in a while; I just want it to be finished right now. Curse you, job. Curse you, sleep.
