Though it was not a deliberate attempt, I managed to squeeze in one last FO before the year ends. Here is the baby bolero from One Skein book, done in the same yarn as the pattern called for, a most sumptiously soft Blue Skies Organic Cotton. This is one of those magical yarns that, once cast on, simply glides and floats through one's fingers... and before you know it, the entire skein is gone, and all one can do is give a wistful sigh that such beautiful yarn is used up.
Another WIP that I cast on 2 nights ago (yes while in the midst of trying to finish my Tuscany shawl as well). 'Wisp' published by knitty. Maybe it's the rainy spell we've been having, but I itched to touch silky halo-y mohair yarn, and those who know me know that I literally itch and break out in a rash as soon as I do. But this 'Silkid Fine' by Puppy Yarn (55% mohair, 45% silk) that I found in my Japan stash, defies all previous mohair-itch experiences and I love it so much that I've been knitting non-stop the past few days. Look, Ma, no itch!
