Yet another Coraline

It's not easy taking a picture of yourself. I found the position where the arm is raised upwards in a sharp angle, in order to get a full body photo, the most challenging. Arm a little shaky (to little exercising of biceps?), and picture gets blurred and totally out of focus. But you get the idea. My Coraline no 2 is finished. Well, it has been for a while, it just took some time to fasten the buttons. I decided to have more buttons than the pattern called for. I made size 36 ", in Koigu Kersti Merino Crêpe. It's hand dyed, if I'm not mistaken. I started the project when I was in hospital, quite weak, knitting in bed. Hence the somewhat imperfect hemline. The yarn was strange. In the beginning it was 'bleeding' dye, so my bamboo stitches got all orange and my fingernails too. Now the bleeding has stopped, it seems. The yarn is great, very nice to work with.
