2 finished objects :)

Yehaa! 2 Fo's today :)

First Tempting II from Knitty, which I think I started at the end of March 2007.

The wool is 100% Merino which I got from the Hamburger Wollfabrik in January or Febuary this year. I did not use all of the yarn although I bought it matching the pattern.... tss...

Needles used: size 5 metric (circs and 1 pair of dpn)

The buckle is from my local fabric store ( where 2 meter of rayon jersey just hopped into my basket :) )

I highly recommend this pattern. Easy and due to the ribbing pattern there is no shaping needed. It is basically a tube :)

Modification: I lengthened the sleeves by 1 cm because I was too stupid to measure the first one properly and I knitted 2 rows of k2tog k1 instead of just one, to prevent the neckline from gaping. I got the info from the sexy knitters club, where this pattern was pattern of the kal summer 2006

This KAL blog is full of inspiration!

Next FO is just a mended pair of jeans, that I started on my vacation in Denmark with Maria and that I had to re-hem too. So this was finished today too and is inspired by madhatter :)

I promise, I'll work on my summerdresses next, but I forgot my blue serger thread in DK....

btw. sorry for the stupid look on my face in the pic and for forgetting that I was wearing a white bra....
