FO: Ribbed Lace Bolero

I feel almost obligated to show you a successful, drama-free project after yesterday's post.

So I will.

This is the Ribbed Lace Bolero by Kelly Maher. (The link is to the free pattern on her blog.)

This was another simple, quick knit, made extra relaxing and pleasant by the yarn I used, which is a heavy worsted weight, single ply, hand-dyed silk I got from Destash last year. I think I used about 300 yards for this project.

I have no complaints about this project. If I were to do it again, I would probably use a slightly smaller needle for a little less relaxed gauge, but this does fit well. I've worn it several times already.

Lovely! Your Parade of FOs is the knitting equivalent of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

What a treat for us readers! Maybe I should let my FO's stack up for a while. About two years, say. Then hire someone to model them for me. :P

Everything you made is beautiful. I think the ribby twinset looks great, and it will work for fall into winter!
