Landsknecht shirt neck smocking complete

I didn't think I would get as much done in the last two days as I have, but I can chalk it all up to Tolkien. I started smocking when I began the first of the three Lord of the Rings movies and finished the neck (to the point it is now) about 1/2 through the sixth of six DVDs.  That's about 11 hours of work to make this neck hole.  All in all that isn't too bad.  The result is as good as I hoped for given that this is my first attempt.
