Loop-de-loop

I've had this project done for a few weeks now, but the coworker for whom it was made occasionally reads this blog, so I wanted to keep it a surprise.

Said coworker marked a birthday and her final day at work this week (she's leaving for a much cooler job - so jealous!). We celebrated with lots of food, ice cream cake, a movie (Dark Shadows) and of course - handknits.

The pattern is A Grey Loop. I modified it to use just one skein of Twinkle Cat DK - colour is Aster. (notes are on my pattern page)

It's a really quick, easy pattern - I had it done in an evening and an afternoon. Nice mindless knitting- I can see more of these made as Christmas presents!

The Twinkle Cat is soooo nice to knit with  - absolutely love it. I love it so much, I've designed a pattern for it, which I'll release soon.

Now I'm off to the dye studio - and there's talk of visiting the local fibrefest this weekend if it doesn't rain. I'll keep you posted!

I really would like to see it around somebody's neck. It does look lovely.
