Well.. that was quick....

...not that I'm complaining. With Christmas exactly one month away, it's good to have another present done and blocking. (FO pics will follow when it's dry.)
This one was quite a fun knit (part of the reason it was finished so quickly. I don't mind colourwork much when it's only two yarns and in the round. The gradient striping nature of the Mochi Plus make it fun - even if it's just grey and brown. (Don't get me wrong... I do like the colours... it's just ALL my knitting is grey and brown right now).
The Mochi Plus is a barely-spun single ply yarn, so it fuzzes up quite nicely, creating a lovely halo. Though I don't recommend it for anything that will get rough wear (like mitts or socks), I still have one ball left, so I'm going to have to find a use for it at some point. I'll have to think on that one.
