fire, fire buring bright, turn on your hot lava, turn on your lava light…

this is the hot lava. it’s not as victorian as it looks here:

Hot Lava FO (6)

so here’s a rare action shot because it’s not too obscene:

Hot Lava FO (4)

here’s the back:

Hot Lava FO (11)

i don’t love how the back looks when it’s on, but my consolation is that i can’t see it.

i learned that i need to pay more attention to my rows on my gauge swatch, because my rows were WAY off on my sweater, making the back really big and the sleeves WAY longer than fingertip length. however, it’ll be good during the winter with sleeves that length when i can’t be bothered to find my gloves. i did get 2 unsolicited compliments however when i wore it at work on monday, so that’s good. i did only 8 rows of the repeats on the bolero (my bust size called for 15) but if I were to do it again i’d have done 10 repeats instead of 8, but it’s fine like it is.

so that’s it for that bad boy… i guess i need to stop putting off mariah and work on it now…
