SCP #1 complete!

Finally, I put a little effort into it and finished...



Started: August 17, 2005
Finished: September 17, 2005
Pattern: Interweave Knits Pg 52...it's a secret!
Yarn: Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed DK in Boheme
Adjustments: I lengthened the whole thing but that was it.
I really love doing the cables. I can't wait to show you a real photo, it is quite impressive. I would say it is one of my very favourites. The yarn is just gorgeous. I still need to block it. I think I will take detailed photos of how to wash and block it as I go to make up instructions (laminated of course) and put this in with the gift. Although, I will most likely be washing it when I go visit the recipient.
I am glad to strike one major holiday gift off the list! Now what...

AHA! You're the one who bought up all the Boheme from Elann. I went to go order some after starting my secret project because I liked it so much...and it was gone. Sniff. Yours looks great, Carolyn--I still think it's hilarious that we were working on the same secret project with the same yarn at the same time!

It looks great. What we can see of it, that is :-). Look at you, knockin' off the holiday knits.

I know exactly what it is.. I was looking through the issue of IK last night. It looks wonderful, Carolyn! ;)

Good for you! One gift down, a few(?) more to go. The cables are very pretty.

Oh, it's lovely. How did you like the Silkroad DK? I'm considering it for a future project. Way to go getting a Christmas gift done - you're ahead of me.

Wow, even if the little tiny bit that I can see looks amazing. I am just learning how to cable without a needle and now I can see how a project like this could be seriously fun.

Can't wait to see the full pic!

Damn, I forgot to go check out what this is. But it looks smashing and I can't wait to see the whole thing!
