Rivolo

All finished and packed up in a ziplock bag waiting for Christmas. I am not sure exactly who is getting this yet, although I have some ideas. Not to sound immodest, but it is just beautiful. The pattern is amazing. I especially love the detail produced by the different placings of the decreases. The yarn is just adorable. Soft and fluid and I can't rave enough about the colour.

It is so gorgeous that I am sorely tempted to keep it myself but I just have the feeling that it will be so perfect for someone else.


This has started a bit of a lace fad and I have now started the Oriel Lace Scarf from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. I am using Dream in Colour Smooshy for this in the Punky Fuschia colourway. I am quite pleased with how that is coming along too. This one is destined for Christmas as well.

Oh, its lovely...how does one get onto your christmas list ?? ;-)

I'm dying to cast on an Oriel (deadline gift knits are in the way though) so will watch to see yours emerge. Love the colour!
