Darth Tater!

Via Boing Boing it's

Darth Fricken Tater!
Can you stand it?

And my birthday a mere month and 4 days away.

I finished swatching my ruffle.

I admit that in its current state it looks like something that would adorn a toilet paper cozy, but I think, when scaled down, it will be far less "square dance" and far more "lettuce edging." The nice thing about the pattern is that it's entirely reversible.
Here's the other side.

There are a few modifications one could make. In the swatch, I'm working increases every other row. This results in a really extreme ruffle. Working the increase every 3rd or 4th row would yield a more gradual transition that could be lovely on the hem of a skirt or as a shawl collar on an otherwise simple sweater.

Another option is to start working the ruffle from halfway down so that the ruffles don't come to a point. This would look a little more natural, and less severe and would also result in a less mountainous ruffle. The technique will be available to you at some date in the not-too-distant future.

Finally, I want to give a little free press to my sweetie.
