It's a little wrapped up ...

Presenting the Pimpelliese by Christine Ebers. I used Noro King yarn purchased at
Seed Stitch Fine Yarn for this.

Should have taken 2 skeins but for some odd reason it took a fraction of a third skein to finish the last 3 inches, even though the first skein completed the first half and a few rows into the decrease for the second half and I had to decrease a little faster (extra rows of decrease) to get the correct width as well. So why did it take more yarn? A mystery.

Ah well, I need to find something to make with the rest of the skein. (??? but what?)

PRETTY! How about a matching hat or fingerless gloves for the rest of the skein?

Thanks! I'm thinking those fingerless mitts are a good idea. Going to go look for a 'lace' pattern now. Happy knitting, ladies!!
