76 days later…

I finished knitting this on the day Grace was born, but ran out of yarn with 33 stitches remaining to bind off. Last week Georgia found an extra skein and sent me a few yards, so I redid the bind-off and blocked it this weekend.

The pattern is Damson by Ysolda Teague, from her Whimsical Little Knits 2 booklet. The actual knitting only took me a bit over a week, and that’s while nine months pregnant and over Christmas so I bet I could have done it faster. The yarn is Yarn Pirate “Haunted,” from the semi-solid Booty Club. I love the yarn, I love the pattern, and I am madly in love with the end result.

Of course, it is 80 degrees in Los Angeles so I have no reason to wear it. Unless I skip wearing a shirt and just wear this instead…

    I could hardly get past semi solid Booty Club, but then again I know nothing about knitting – I’m just immature :)
