Let the madness begin

Okay, the Dreambird instructions are a little murky, I think mostly because they're a translation. But once you get past the *oddness* of it, it's fairly easy to follow. I substituted my own short-row turn (any non-wrap turn will do, and probably the wrapped turns will work too, if you're used to doing them), and if you get the pattern, be sure to download the PDF with the numerical instructions (with exact stitch counts). I switched over to that for the gray area after the feather and found it easier to follow. Bear in mind, there is a lot of counting. A LOT.

But man, this is going to be amazing.

The first feather took an entire evening to knit, but I imagine it'll speed up as I get used to the routine.

Only 21 more to go...
