last second gift idea [Dec. 23rd, 2004|02:47 pm]
Lucky me, I have today off from work ^_^
Here's the yarn for a project that I'm inspired to start.
It's a last second gift idea for a good friend of mine.
The yarn is Lion Brand Homespun in "Antique" and Lion Brand Fun Fur in "Violet"...it runs almost $5 a skein.
The pattern is just a simple garter stitch on regular 15 gauge needles. I thought about making a keyhole scarf, but decided against it.
Whoa, the needles are huge...I'm not used to this gauge. ^_^
Let's see how long it takes me to knit this one...

The red is more of a burgundy with little bits of dark blue & tan...pretty neat effect. However, the fun fur really obscures it. The fun fur has "lashes" that are longer than the Bernat eyelash.

Urgh. Well, that's annoying. Is the obscured effect at least turning out well? *hopeful*
