Fini! The b.Lime Love continues at Chez Chic
heading into the weekend with more than a little Romance…

Higher Knitting Education continued for me on this project – the collar was very challenging and I admit to being of very little faith at one (ok, two or three) points but just did what the pattern said to do and VOILA! Form and function prevail – this design incorporates a genius use of short-rowing – a standing ovation for the wonderful Ms. Bliss!

The collar drapes beautifully and indeed, is a true shawl!

I believe this yarn could be an acquired taste. This brushed merino is not as warm as mohair but yields a fabric that is a cross between that fiber’s fuzzy goodness and felt. It is very soft and lightweight – a pleasure to wear.

TGIF!
