Another choker

So yesterday was the deadline for the Stitch Diva flower competition.. and in pure sylvie-style, I actually waited till the very last minute !

I had already done a choker with their flower (see a few posts down), but had only a real bad photo of it. So I made another one, this time of my own design.

It doesn't show that well on the pics but it actually has a slanted lace pattern, and picot edging on each border. Of course the flower was their Dusty rose.

I couldn't really choose between those 3 pics (taken at 11 pm in the bathroom!!), let me know what you think.

Of course I know I look so severe on the last one, but I figured this is where you kind of best see the slanted pattern..?

Anyhow, I have to frog it and reknit it now, as I made it a bit too wide (will take out one pattern repeat). Oh, and the actual colors are a deep pink and tweedy grey for center of flower. All unlabeled pure wool from my stash..
