We got in from our travels a little early, giving me the opportunity to finish up one of the 2006 UFO's.
I present Rogue :
modeled in the dark without enough light to see detail, and me in my sweats, but done before the end of the year.
Here is a little detail of the neckline:
And the hood:
The yarn is Tahki's Donegal Tweed which had been residing in my stash for at least 10 years. I knew it would not show the detail of the pattern stitches as well as a solid yarn but I knew I wanted to use it for Rogue as soon as I discovered the pattern, in the fall of 2005.
Although I have not finished as many projects in 2006 as I hoped, I must admit that I am happy with what I have produced. In fact both Rogue and Mermaid were fun to knit and I love the results. Both patterns are ones that I will probably knit again because they are so basic and entertaining knits, and they are basic enough and flattering enough to earn repeated wear.
