Pattern: Urchin by Ysolda Teague, from the Fall 2007 Knitty (ravel it)

Yarn: Debbie Bliss SoHo, colorway unknown (old stash), almost 2 skeins

Needles: US 11 Brittany DPNs

 

Tams don’t really suit me (notice how the photos are rear views), but they’re fun to knit. Both were blocked drastically over my big round platter.

 

WIP update: I’m loving the cowl, and I’ll post pictures here soon. The Professor’s socks are finished; he describes them as “Incredible! Toasty warm and custom fit.” I’m cranking away on the gift knitting.

 

Tomorrow, I’ll post details of our New Year’s Eve dinner menu (too delicious not to share). Best wishes for an amazing and wonderful 2009!
