Splurge!

I finished my Pimlico Shrug and I just love it! Once I get some good photos of it I will post.

In-the-mean-time, I casted on for my usual Itty-Bitty Hats - always a must knit for me, always have the yarn for it and always have babies to knit for so they are easy projects to have going while I try to decide what to cast on for next. Soooooo, while trying to decide what to do I thought I better use a couple gift cards that I'd had to one of my LYS. I decided on this pattern, Comfy Kimono from Rowan Classic Accessories that I always wanted to try but knew it'd be a lot to tackle and pretty pricey but since I had the gift cards I totally went for it!!! Check it out…


OMG, I hope this turns out! The Baby Llama yarn is soooooo nice.


This will be the most intricate pattern I've done. Hope mine looks as cool as the one on this model.


Wish me luck. It will probably take me until Fall!

OMG, that baby llama yarn looks heavenly! I can't wait to see your Pimlico Shrug. A friend of mine just finished hers and it was way too big.

Having trouble posting....sorry if this shows up 4 times....

I hope the yarn works for this top. It's a great yarn and pattern. And it will look fantastic on you.

Great photo with the new camera. I still need to learn how to use our new 'fancy' one. Andy has it figured out, I can't break myself of the point-and-shoot model.
