Jessimaca's Gradumatation

The sister is getting ready to graduate Saturday, and yet, I haven't aged a day since my own graduation. Unfortunately she will be the recipient of another knitted project. This one is a calla lily (her favorite). I'm addicted to Knitty, and have a bad habit of trying any pattern that I can finish in a weekend, though I finished this much more quickly. I liked forcing myself to master short rows, so that I'll be ready to tackle socks in all their glory for this year's Christmas gifts.

I thought of making a whole bouquet, but what on earth would she do with them? So I settled on making just one. It has a mistake, but I don't think she'll notice. Also, getting the floral wire to stay put was a pain in the ass.
