It's been a while since I've had a FO. So long, in fact, that you probably forgot what FO stands for! That's finished object in knitterspace-verse. Ha!
I was so excited to knit this pattern with such a lovely yarn. I bought this stuff two years ago at a Fiber Fest and it's gorgeous and super soft. The color is amazing - purples, pinks, yellows, and dashes of bright red and bright purple. Love it!
Pattern: Iron Maiden by Marisa Hernandez
Yarn: Dye2Spin 50/50 SW Merino Silk Fingering
Needles: US 7 circs
Made for: me
Time to completion: 7 months
This project is the beginning of a new quest for my knitting self. I can't do lace. There are so many mistakes in this thing, you only get to see the part that looks okay. By the end of this project, I was disgusted with myself and my knitting. So, a break from lace. Until then, I'm going to google every stitch that I read before making it (except knit, purl). I'm that annoyed with my lack of knowledge. Things I thought I knew how to do, I obviously don't. Ugh!
So! Watch for more knitting talk and, hopefully, more FOs, as I begin my quest to become a better knitter.
