Lacey Racy

Withouth further ado...
I finished this over the weekend:

I think the front is OK too:

I am glad I did ordered the fifth bal of yarn, withouth it I wouldn't be able to finish it, but there about two third of the ball was left over... so, since I wanted a crocheted cap for ages, I thought I might try to make one:

I used up all the yarn I had, even had to frog a couple of rows from the swatch, but at the end all I had left were the pieces I cut off after weaved the ends in.

The details... pattern is so heavily modified, there was only the original idea left... Yarn: Patons Serenity DK (50% cotton, 50% bamboo), needles 2.5mm straight knitting needles, 3mm crochet hook.

(Mom, Grandma, see what I made??? Are you proud of me?)
