Made it!

Since we leave tomorrow for a week of vacation, and I wanted to get my One Piece Lace Pullover off to be finished, I burned the midnight oil last night, unravelling my ravels and finishing!
Here's a picture of what it looks like pre-blocking and pre-sewing together; I'm very pleased with it, loved making it, and now definitely want to make a Clapotis, preferable out of something as soft and yummy as this Brooks Farm Duet!
Now, just so I can be into something when we get to our vacation spot, I am casting on in the Peaches and Creme cotton for my daughter's pink cotton duffel bag, adapted from a pattern in Knitting with Ribbon Yarn. This is probably one of my more experimental patterns, in that I am not really following the pattern at all, just using it as a reference point and taking bits and pieces from other patterns and my imagination. I'm using small--size 4--needles, to ensure that the fabric is tight and secure. So we'll see how it goes. More to come when I return!

Followed you over to your blog from IK KAL - it looks great! Love that you've outsourced the last bit of work - gives you time to cast on something new, no?
