I am happy to report I've finished my first Tiny Tea Leaves Pullover. See, it is so special is gets capital letters! I'm really pleased with it, and so are the girls. The only real problem now is I have to make another one...............
These pictures were taken before I blocked it (ok, I still haven't blocked it, I'm easily distracted). So I am hoping to get a bit more size out of it then. I measured the girls and made one size bigger (don't they just grow so fast?) and still it could be bigger. So I'm away to block. Soon. Sometime.
Pattern: Tiny Tea Leaves
Yarn: Araucania Aysen. It is 70% merino, 20% alpaca, 10% silk
I also finished my first sock for the Turning Heels in the New Year with Beth over at Visions of Sugar Plums. I admit I worked like mad yesterday to get it done on time. I love having a deadline, it really helps! It is..........ok. To me it looks like blue camouflage. At least it fits, though after a wash I'll get back to you. Last week there was a comment on my post that this particular yarn shrinks. Eeek! I've decided I really need to buy some sock yarn I love, and that will make all the difference.
Here are the blog parties for this week:
