hopelessly over committed
still behind on every project i have started, i put those aside (maybe never to be picked up again)… to start a gift.
(pat myself on the back) it is finished. (slap my hand with a wooden ruler) it is late.
friends should not give friends late birthday presents. sigh.
here it is: completed!
source: debbie bliss knitting magazine spring/summer 2009 (yes this is another recycled pattern only this one was published in 2006… not 1995)
yarn: i love this cotton in brown one skein
i made both the moss stitch and the lace pattern with moss stitch. after completing the moss stitch version with us size 9 needles i went down to the 8s so the detail of the lace would show better on the second one.
note: my hangers measured in between the two sizes in her pattern so i went with the small and it turned out fine.
i have never used this yarn before and i bought it because it was an exact color match for the fabric. i was amazed how soft and lofty it knits up.
btw~ while everything else is on the back burner i have been invited to a sock class this weekend….. another commitment (oh my)
