Surprise FO!

Ha! I didn't even post about casting on for this one (I don't think - I'm too lazy to look back). It was such a quick knit I barely took progress pics. It's Presto Chango!


Gosh, she really didn't want to be photographed. And I consider myself to be pretty good with a camera. Inside, outside, flash, no flash, automatic, manual...I just couldn't get a great one. The lace panel is prettier in person.

It's worked up in Mission Falls 1824 Cotton which I found a little bit too nubby for my taste. I have two balls left and may use it for a matching hat and bib but it's listed in my Ravelry stash as sell/trade. The pattern was straightforward and kudos to the designer as this was her first pattern! I made no mods but will say I had to fiddle with the first row of lace where you yarn over in between purl and knit stitches. Lots of posts out there in blogland about the best way to do this without a too-big hole. Now it's on to something new in my queue!

Too cute!!


Very cute!

I love the colour!

Myself I liked knitting with Mission Falls, but it's not for everyone. The FO looks great, though.
