This little sweater has a story. Last winter, I thought that I would knit each of my nieces a sweater for their birthdays in April. I got to work in February, thinking I had plenty of time. I was wrong. I lost interest, but luckily decided to knit the sweaters a size larger than would fit them now. So since April this poor little sweater has been thrown aside needing only a few hours of finishing on the neckband. I'm not thrilled with how the neck turned out, so it may still be ripped. But I still have to decide whether or not to knit the second one. I had also planned on embroidering each girl's initial on the front in a contrasting color.

Flora.

Flora 1This is Flora from the newest edition of Knitty. I used Angel Hair, which is part of the Joann Sensations line available at Joann fabric stores. The color is posy. This is a soft yarn, very soft - despite the borderline noveltiness of it. And it only took one skein to complete the scarf. A quick knit and a bargain. This may be a gift, or I may decide to keep it for myself.
