FO: Cygnet

True to my word, I had Miss Rowan's shrug off the needles and on the blocking board by Friday night. Sunday morning, I added the buttons and sewed in the ends...
It gave me fits trying to photograph it though. My child-sized hangers were too small, but my adult-sized hangers were too big.
It just doesn't look as nice laid out flat on the ground, but it will have to do until I can get some modeled shots.
The yarn is Island Yarn's Pagoda - a blend of merino and bamboo. The bamboo content is pretty high, so it's very silky and slippery. It has a nice drape though. I'm still not overly thrilled with the crazy pooling, but I can live with it.
Some heart buttons from the stash finished this one off nicely.

As mentioned previously, it's my Cygnus pattern, sized down. I will definitely be knitting another one, because I've wanted to make a Littles version of Cygnus for a long time.

But for now, I'm turning my attention to a never-ending man sock...

It turned out lovely. The buttons are just the perfect finishing touch.

I think this turned out great - even the pooling - it almost looks kind of tie=dyed. It is going to look so cute on her - can't wait to see the "for real" photos!!

It's adorable! The pooling won't be noticeable when she's wearing it.

Very nice. I like the pooling and the buttons too! It's all good! I don't envy you with the never ending man socks though. ;-)
