A Productive Day

Ta-da, presenting the Lace Trim Bolera from VK Spring & Summer 2005. Yes, I finally managed to finish it yesterday. Knitted continuously for almost 10 hours. Believe it, I sat and knit the whole day seaming and knitting the lace edging. At last its all done up. Isn't she beautiful, decorated with the lacey edging.

Knitted-up with almost balls of Katia Nilo (white) on size 5 Clover needle. I use up almost 3/4 of a ball just for the lace. Can't believe it myself that the lace edging will use up so much yarn. A very interesting knit on the edging as you will have to knit up the lace edging and sew it on the outer edge as you knit.

Well, want to see me posing with bolera.

Overall, the FO fitted out well. This is my first FO using Katia Nilo. It is so nice to knit with, non-splitting at all, light weight and it has some sheen on it too. I can't wait to finish Snowy another project using the same yarn. I hope that it will turn out as good as Bolera. I still have to finish 2 more sleeves for Snowy.

Great FO! I can imagine how hard it's to sew the trim around the bolero.
