So, I have just finished the tie which actually posed quite a challenge in getting the stripes to look good - I wasn't that successful, but it still looks pretty nice. The colors are great but hard to match and I really did enjoy working with this yarn. It was all - pattern and yarn - in a kit I got for Christmas a few years ago called I believe Knit III. My roommate realized that it would make a pretty belt, since I already wear ties as belts and it looks really cute, I actually wore it today - it's so much fun to wear a hand-knitted project! All in all, a pretty cool FO :-)
I have a few other updates, but I need to leave those until tomorrow, cuz it's late...more tomorrow!
