A work in progress....


This picture really doesn't do these any justice. Hopefully though, you can make out the pattern. The pink one on the bottom is one that I have already completed, and the one on top is still on the needles. I'm hoping to have it done today or tomorrow.

The yarn is 100% silk and is made by HandMaiden. Unfortunately I have had a hard time getting my hands on this stuff. It's really beautiful and light. The pattern comes with the yarn, and the only problem I've had with it is that when I make a mistake and have to rip back, the texture of the yarn really makes it difficult for me to keep track of the stitches because they like to cling to eachother. Because of this, I actually go through and count stitches after every row to make sure that they are all where they're supposed to be.
