I am delighted to show you my FO. This baby came off my needles last night, while the Bulls lost game 2 in the playoffs.
The Pattern is Savory Knitting's
Since I knit it up in navy/creme I'll call it Blueberry Wine....
She used 359 yards of sportweight yarn
I used 363 yards of Superwash Merino.
Ella Rae Lace Merino
At 23.00 a skien this is a 69.00 dollar
This would make a great great gift. It would also delight me to wear it , throughout next fall and winter. Guess what? It is mine.
Channon, you'll be happy to know I have already decided it will look lovely with a creme colored turtle neck top.
This was a very easy knit up in simple ribbed stitches in the round. It did wear on my hands a bit but not nearly as much as the baby ponchos did.
I would love to knit another for a gift sometime after my wrists and hands recover a bit.
There is nothing Lacy about the Lace merino Chunky Ella Rae yarn. It is soft and squishy; in the most delightful way. It is "hand dyed in chile by Aracania Yarns"
Good news: my new Sock Yarn feels so light I'm not in any discomfort knitting today.
What's your good news for the day?
