What to say.....

Another FO. Not for me - for my momma, hence the somewhat craptastic pictures. But it's done. Yippee. I hope you like it momma. I'm still debating a single crochet edging, but I'll let you decide that when you actually get to try it on in a few days!

Pattern: Mine, from the Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns
Yarn: Classic Elite Provence - 2 skeins (a lot of bang for your buck!)
Needles: Sz 13 Clover Bamboo Circs - 2 pairs (after one was eaten by the lab)
Gauge: 3 st/in - light and lacy on purpose.
Mods: none
Thoughts: I hope it fits you mom!

And as for the blue blob from Sunday - that's the Baltic Sea Stole, all knitted up, waiting to be blocked. I block on The Girl's bed, so I had to wait for her to go to her mom's tonight to block it. It's all pinned out now - looks great, I can't wait to show you. I hope sis likes it. And no, it didn't take 10 years to knit, it just felt like it at times! Hopefully it'll be dry for pictures soon!

I also got my lovely lace swap package on Saturday, but ran out of daylight to take it's picture today - soon, I promise!


  1. Cute sweater, Jenn! Perfect for summer and very feminine.

  2. I love that color! I'm sure she'll love it.

  3. That's lovely! I'mn sure she'll love it.

    Whew - glad it didn't take a whole ten years to knit your gorgeous stole :0 Hee hee. Can't wait to see it all blocked out!

    What a pretty gift for your mom! I like the color a lot.

    Congrats on finishing your stole too -- I can't wait to see your photos. You have a lucky sister!

  5. I bet she'll love it!

  6. Wow - only 2 skeins? Amazing. How could she not love it?
