Sorry for the lack of updates! I was able to finish up the last half of the back last night and pin it down for blocking. This project is turning out fine, but it has sure taken a while. It must have been all the K2 P2 rib that I had to do, as well as the fine gauge of the yarn. The Linen Drape has softened up after blocking and the fabric created does indeed have a very nice "drape." Aside from the seaming, all I need to do is knit up the tie. I should be able to wear this during the weekend!
