to start knitting for Christmas, right? I started this back in April and then somehow lost it (does this mean I have too big a UFO pile?). It's been rediscovered. I bought one skein of super soft wool-silk. It's got such a pretty sheen that my camera can't capture it. It's like someone took a Mason-Pearson boar-bristle brush and gave the yarn 100 good strokes with it.
So after many starts and ripping back about a dozen times, I settled on a simple feather and fan pattern.
