Project Notes:
I knitted exactly to pattern. The only thing that I might have changed, if I knew I would have so much yarn left over is to knit with a size 7 US or size 8 US. I'm such a tight knitter.

Do you all think that it's too tight? I guess it could be looser.

All in all, the pattern was intimidating at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's a breeze. You start of with 375 stitches which is the sides of the triangle, which is a pain, but it gets smaller and smaller as you progress. That's about it.
