In the interests of keeping this at least a little bit of a surprise, I've tried to do some close up shots to give a sense of the finished item, but no big reveal. Maybe Mom will send me a modeled shot once it arrives.
A second Tappan Zee, made from handspun merino/silk, with US 5/3.75 mm needles, 26 Nov - 7 Dec, no mods to the pattern. The orange is a bit more, ehem, robust then I was aiming for, but I think it will be ok.
I even used some of the labels Mom gave me a while ago.
I hope she likes it!
