Quant......the first of '08

Wow. It's only the 3rd and I have a FO already! Granted, it is something small.....but something none the less :)

Patten: Quant, by Star Athena....from the latest Knitty.
Yarn: Noro Kureyon, No. 172
Needles: US size 8 straights and DPN's
I really liked this pattern as soon as I saw it. I've found that whenever I go to do an entrelac project, Noro is the first thing I go for. On this particular project, however, I wish I had used the Taos the pattern calls for. The color runs in the Noro are just too long for the short width. I still like the project....just not as much as I would had the color been more broken up. Luckily for me, I already have two colorways of Taos on the way from Yarnmarket. Oops. So much for that yarn diet. I like the way this one fits, though, and can see myself wearing it frequently. It covers my ears nicely which will be helpful in the freakin' miserably cold weather we've been having.

oooh that looks really nice. I think when I make mine I am going to put in a button hole instead of the ties.

I hope you had a happy holidays!
