MS3 is finished!

and I'm a bit disappointed, not because of how it turned out-I absolutely love it, but because it was such fun knitting it I'm sad to finish.

Which at a guess would mean I need to make another......

This one was knitted in Habu Textiles pure bamboo laceweight bought at Ally Pally two and a half years ago but sat waiting for the right project to come along and it was worth the wait. I have enough left to make another the same but might try dying it another colour or use it for another lacy project.

The yarn is smooth, silky and soooo soft, an absolute dream to knit, I used good old Brittany Birch needles and some beads which were lying around from something else (and they must have been around for quite a while because I can't for the life of me remember what the something else was!

If the weather improves tomorrow, I'll post some pics of other recently finished FO's but its raining again and the light is really bad, my photography is bad enough without trying to do piccies in dull light. ( finished 2 cardi's, Lotus Blossom Tank and some more jewellry so it might be a bit picture heavy).

Catknit its beautiful! Its such fun seeing everyone's MS3. I wonder if it made it seem quicker to knit with only being given the pattern in stages?

Is there anything you can't knit?! You're showing the rest of us up!

In answer to Badger, spaghetti was a bit messy, I think it was overcooked for knitting but there was quite a delicate balance in the cooking times between snapping cos it was too brittle and snapping cos it was too soggy.
Also it made a mess of my needles.
