FO: Merlot Lace

I definitely took a chance with this one. I was hesitant, because I'm a person who always thinks things look really cool on other people, and then when I put them on I look like an idiot. But this really surprised me - I love it!

Pattern: Sophia by Juliet Moody
Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool

This is a perfect shirt for Spring. I wore it around this evening as we went on a walk, and it was amazing! Eventually, I'd like to make another with nicer yarn, perhaps a cotton. But as 2011 is the year of stashbusting, I went with what I had, and am very happy with the outcome! It's open and airy, comfy, and pretty cute, if you ask me!

Look what else I saw on our walk - they smelled amazing!


  1. you took a chance and totally hit the jackpot!

  2. WOW! You look fantastic! I really like this project! I might have to add this to my list for spring/summer knits!

  3. Yeah, I think I'll add it to my never ending queue too. But it would be so much more wearable here in Texas than most of the things I knit. Great job!

  4. @knittingdaisiesthanks! i lucked out on this one :)

  5. @Michelle thank you! i definitely recommend it - it was very simple and a super quick knit!

  6. @Michelle it would be perfect for Texas! And a huge plus that you & your daughter could share it :)
