Pattern: Color Affection by Veera Välimäki
Yarn: 3 skeins Miss Babs Yet Lace Weight color combo
Needles: US 5
Started: August 12, 2012
Finished: December 3, 2012
Talk about the hottest knitting pattern around. If you are ever around a bunch of knitters, yarn store or perhaps Stitches... you're going to see one and want one. AND if your me... totally cast one on the minute you hit the Miss Babs booth. WHY? because they have the colors already selected for you. Super easy, just grab and go. No thinking involved.
The minute I saw the green I was in love. Wear this all the time and it wasn't until I just finished my last project that I totally realized I hadn't blogged about this one.

Pattern: Wingspan by Maylin Tri'Coterie Designs
Yarn: 1 skein of Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball
Needles: US 5 circular
Started: January 11, 2013
Finished: March 24, 2013
Notes: The final depth is shallow, measuring from bind-off edge to a point at 9 inches.
My gauge measures 6sts per inch, which to be honest I didn’t even check. Wanted something mindless to work on. I love it. Just wish I had an extra ball so I could make it longer. It’s barely long enough to keep my neck warm. Made it to 10 points and bound off with only 1 gram to spare.
I’d totally make this again. Would adjust it to allow for deeper points and have plenty of yarn to make this go further.
If you ever get a chance, check out the long list of finished objects on this project list. Some very awe-inspiring projects that make you drool.
