Me time

Knitting for others is a joy.  Yet every now and then I get the urge to make something for myself.  I used Caron's new eco-yarn that replaced Simply Soft.  It really is wonderful and is supposedly made in part from recycled plastic bottles.

Ooo I like this, how long did it take?

I wish I could share the pattern, but... it's a 11-row lace pattern over 18 stitches that I did over and over again to get the right size. It came from "Beautiful Knitting Patterns" by Gisela Klopper.

If you send me your e-mail, I might be able to send you a copy of the page with the pattern I used. I hope that's not violating any online copyright laws. :)

It took about a month or so. I was watching movies while knitting it, so it went pretty fast once I memorized the pattern.
