Well I finished knitting and blocking this and I love it. I wrote about it earlier, the pattern is Venetian Blind from Ravelry. The fiber was my kitchen sink single..( a little of everything spun on the fly) plied with a single spun turquoise merino braid from Quillin Fiber Arts. I used the same color to create a bulky two ply to knit the collar, the increases and for binding off. I spun a tailspun yarn with locks from https://www.etsy.com/shop/MarkreeWoolCraft on etsy.
