Warm colours and warm fibres - the two first 2009 FOs:
Pattern: Selbu Modern from Zeitgeist yarn
When I first saw the pattern, I thought there was cabling involved, but it's not. It's just a very simple, but clever lace pattern, quickly learned, and a well written pattern. And the yarn is incredibly soft, merino, alpaca and silk.
I used kitchener stitch to join the ruffles at the end. I have done that many times, and it's logical, really, how you should do it, but I always have troubles starting. Now I was ok, after I found this nice tutorial on the PurlBee.
