august is almost over and i’m blogging to present one last FO before the month officially ends.

Juno Regina complete 2

(Ravel It!)

pattern: juno regina from knitty
yarn: sundara fingering silky merino in winter sky – 1 skein plus another 25 grams from a second skein
needles: US 4 bryspun flex circulars

mods/comments: i made just one modification to the pattern. rather than knitting in one length from end to end, i knit the first half two times and the grafted the two halves together. this worked out really well to create a perfectly symmetrical scarf and the graft is not noticeable at all after blocking.

i do love everything about this FO.  the pattern is really well written and beautiful.  it had interesting lace bits and long mindless knitting too.  the yarn.  i cannot say enough good things about sundara’s fingering silky merino.  it is absolutely luscious.  it feels and looks amazing, and i can’t wait to knit a full sweater out of it.  this colorway, winter sky, was originally a winter shipment from the season’s club, but is now offered as part of the permanent collection.

i guess this wraps up my august race to the finish.  i’m very happy with the results.  i finished three of the four projects that had been hanging on for just too long.  it feels good to have them complete and i can move on to fall knitting with little guilt.  the final project, my moon dance stole, isn’t finished quite yet.  i did make some good progress on it though and i expect i’ll be posting it as an FO within the next couple of weeks.

now with a holiday weekend ahead (yay!) i can plan my next set of projects.
