All week I looked for my camera. It is probably a good thing it took me so long to figure out in which safe place I'd left it. If I'd found it sooner, perhaps after the first knitted gift was finished this past week, I might have taken a full shot of it, a spoiler, indeed. Looking everywhere, over and over again, gave me time to cool my ardor. I love this little pattern. Knitting it is a bit like that chips commercial , after one, you need another. By the time I finaly looked in the toe of the hiking shoes that I'd left in on the floor of the car I'd finished three. Safe places, indeed!
I've posted details on my Ravelry project page. The details should be safe there. The recipients don't ravel. I've added another to the stack since this picture was taken Friday. It's a rusty red and it is mine!
Seriously, this project is a quick knit, using an aran wt. yarn and #8 needles. If you are still searching for a pattern, suitable for a girl, that you can finish in time for Christmas, look no further. One skein of my Breckenridge makes two. The one on top, in Forest, was leftover from another project.
The colder temps this morning, gave the perfect excuse to try one out. I've been trying to manage a three mile hike through the woods everyday. When I'd gone a mile and warmed up enough that I didn't need this little gem, I found it to be the perfect size to roll up and stuff into my pocket.
