sorry, I had some angora up my nose there.

yarn: L.U.P 100% angora, just under 5 balls (tho at 7 grams a ball...)
needles: 3.25mm bamboo DPNS
pattern: This was a photocopied freebie from my LYS

Well, well, angora is not the boss of me after all. After I finished the vest last weekend I FORCED myself to grab mitt #2 and just bust it out. And now it is done. And I sneezed a lot.

But I still give it a thumbs up.

As much as I love the feel of angora I will likely never knit with it again. It was like trying to knit with a bunny laying on my face. I should have realized this after a similar scarf situation as well. I love that scarf, but everytime I wear it it sheds all over me, gets up my nose and in my eyes...there's no winning. How did those sweater-girl women of the forties ever handle that?!

So there, take that little bunny frou-frou you are a U.F.O no more.
boo yeah.

You look so cute with them. I agree though, angora is way to itchy!
