Through with languishing on my sweater shelf, this finished object is finally out of the closet.
What started out as a Bavarian dirndl type thing, ended up much more medieval due to a knitting sabbatical in Upper Canada. When I returned to Nova Scotia (late last year) I was immersed in the immense biography of Eleanor of Aquitaine and was centering my day around the cartoon Jane and the Dragon. Throw in a new passion for Barbra Walker's mosaic/slip stitch patterns and it's no wonder that my sweater took a distinct turn towards Lady Armour. Details:

All hail the misunderstood bobble.
