Finished!! After a false start with the waistband, I finally got something to work. I quite like the finished result. Paired with these cheapo tights and my cheapo boots, I think it looks quite fetching. 'scuse the no make up and greasy hair! :)

You know how you have your "holy grail" yarns that you reeeeeally want. Well, this is one of them for me. It came up in an update one Friday evening, but I wasn't logged in. So by the time I got around to it, it was all gone.
Low and behold, someone took pity on me after scoring her own "holy grail" of Mont Blanc, and sold me her Maus Jung. It goes to show that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I think this is GLORIOUS!!
Now for me to get my hands on some Ooohm DK...
When I first did the math I came up with 130 stitches. As I knit along I could quickly see that there waaaay too many stitches. So I ripped it out and just guessed at 100 stitches. Sooo much better. Now that I'm almost done, I can see that it'll sit just about the knee. Perfect! Can't wait to kitchener it together and see what it looks like!

Doesn't this tiny thing make your heart melt? It was obviously a super fast knit using less than half a skein of Cascade 220. Even with that pom pom! Hopefully baby Tia can get some wear out of it as the weather cools.
