Yesterday, even among the drips (which, thankfully, have slowed back down to one drip today), I finished my first true 2011 object. All the knitting was done this year. Matchgirl (Pattern #0706) by Dolce Handknits.
I think I was most taken with the way the top and bottom cuffs echo each other - the bottom scalloping edge is achieved through knitting, the top uses crochet.
These flittens have a nice length to them - I think the final measurement is about 9 inches. Makes for a tricky self-photo.
Ack! Creepy spider hand!
My secret is....I've still haven't taken down my Christmas cards!
These were a great, low-key, quick knit. I have not knit with a novelty yarn in a while and I expected more trouble from the sequins. It was only a minor issue when it came to weaving in ends really. I had purchased three balls of this yarn, Rozetti Yarns "Polaris" in "Cloud Dancer". I used a whopping 0.61grams of one-skein. Color me impressed. I'm considering my options for what to do with the remaining 2.4 skeins! Currently I'm thinking about Chinook Scarf or Simple Things.
