C'est Finis!

I picked up knitting needles for the first time, about a year ago. And almost immediately my desire to knit this pattern got ahead of my ability to do it. But I jumped in with both feet, only three short months after my very first knit project and, five repeats later, I abandoned it for nine long months. Too slippery on the needles and too sticky for frogging, the mohair yarn was leaving me with nohair and a slightly defeated spirit. Since that modest beginning, I've learned much, especially an appreciation for other's finely honed knitting skills, and I decided to give it a go again. So I put this baby on a circular needle and rested easy that this was going to be, at worst, a learning project. Just not an abandoned one, anymore.

Thanks! It's Patons Lacette. Sort of shiny AND fuzzy, up close.

Your branching out is GORGEOUS. I'm kniting mine in the same color, even though it isn't as pretty, LOL. Keep up the great work. :-D
