FO: masala oatmeal

pattern: oatmeal

yarn: knit picks wool of the andes bulky in masala

needle: sz. 10.5 & sz. 11

started: november 28, 2011

finished: december 3, 2011

oatmeal is done! woooooooooo! i wasn't sure this would fit (because i have a very bad habit of never doing a gauge swatch, oops), but it worked out. i love top down because you can try it on as you go, even though i usually drop a few stitches every time i do that :) hehe

i ended up having a skein and a half extra, better too much than not enough though! i think im going to make a nice bulky hat with the extra...i'm about due for another hat anyways ;)

this pattern was a piece of cake, great commute knitting. seems like i will be wearing handknits all winter...awww yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah
