One would think I was a knitting machine...but..um..no... Lest you think I was only knitting on UFO's, I cast on this one day and finished the next.
Knit from my own silky cashmerino handspun!!
I'm a wee bit proud too!
I only had 120 yards of a sport/dk weight, as you can see below, not much left...
exactly 21" left that is. I did plan this...well sorta ;) I knit 2 pattern repeats and thought I would have enough for at least half of one repeat, so I went for it. While knitting the garter rows at the top, realized I wouldn't be able to knit the same I did for the base, so I bound off using larger needles.
Was still sweating a bit, but whew, made it!
