I was sorting out a basket of knitting stuff last weekend, and came across a UFO tucked in the bottom. I had started knitting this last fall, it was to be a Hanukkah/Christmas gift for my boss/friend Tamar. For whatever reason, I put it away, probably too many other projects, and knew I'd never finish in time. Out of sight, out of mind, I forgot about it. When it turned up, I figured, well, her birthday is the 18th of this month, I finish it for that. I'd knitted this pattern twice before, this is the 2nd time I used Plymouth Linen Isle. I like the way the colors of the yarn show up in the knitted fabric. Now that it's finished, I think the shoulder straps should have been a little longer, but I did go with the measurements of my modifications to the pattern, so we'll see. She's tiny, except for "the girls." ;-) Hopefully it will fit. I've got some Linen Isle in my stash which I purchased to make this pattern for me. I wonder if I ever will?
There's a contest over at Cass' blog to celebrate #555. She's got some great prizes for the winners, but the blog is a very good read. If you haven't, go over and enter, you have until May 7.
