Finished near Friday

Pattern: Children's Neck Down Bolero by Dianne Soucy
Yarn: Cascade Cotton Rich, 5 skeins
Needles: size 8 and 7

I knit the size 2. I'm still not sure about the button placement. The yardage of the yarn is small and there were knots, so there were quite a few ends to weave in. I was afraid the yarn would be too bulky to weave in well, but this turned out know to be a problem. The pattern is very quick to knit and well-written. It would be lovely in Jo Sharp's Silkroad Aran Tweed, but I wanted something a bit more rugged and easy to wash.

Pattern: I used a combination of Wendy's Toe Up Sock and Mim's Toe Up Heel Flap.
Yarn: Kool Aid dyed at the Anacortes Arts Festival this year by mwah:)at Ana-Cross Stitch needle works shop.
Needles: size 1

This was a very fun project for me. I am very cheered by the bright colors and the sweet kool aid smell.
