Weekend FO

Pattern: Calorimetry from Knitty - I've been on the bandwagon again
Needles: 4mm straights
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Silky Wool, and Kidsilk Haze, held together.
Mods: None required. I tried to wrap the short rows to avoid the holes but it was a bit confusing doing this took, what with all the passing stitches around, so I fudged it and ended up with holes in some places and not others.

I bound off with my new favourite k2tbl method, which was a mistake in hindsight, since the cast off edge is now way TOO loose and longer than the cast on edge - it's the bottom edge in the picture. But, that edge can just be at the back, I think.

It's a present for Cara who is one of the other teachers on the ski trip; however, it was painful giving it away, since it is so soft and fluffy and warm that I wanted to keep it for myself, and I can hardly knit one for me in the same colours. I am thinking of making a variation on a panta instead, with cables instead of ridges.

However, April may well be the month for finishing, so I might not make myself anything new at all. Though, I have some lovely teal bamboo which is calling to me, and a pattern all ready for we'll see.
