This was my Christmas present from my sister Donna. Merci Pet!
I love love love it! So I called this one 'Catnip' because it was that much fun to knit and roll around with.
I tried it on for size in this picture as soon as I got it off the harmonies.
A SOAK bath and a good blocking overnight did wonders. Like magic the motif pops and everything looks slick.
I got 4 skeins of this in my gift but only used 3 1/2. I will test my fingers on a swatch for a matching hat with the seed stitch and lace, sideways.
I LOVE the seed stitch version of this (mine). But then again, I am biased about seed stitch.
Good news! I got a call this morning and have been asked to teach a class at my new LYS. Best job in the world. Amen.
