While on vacation, I finished knitting my first Christmas gift, Verdigris from Summer Knitty:
Yarn is Tactile merino-tencel, and I love the colors. I did the long version for the fun of it! The pattern stitch is beautiful, and I’ll probably use it for a pair of socks sometime. I learned a new tubular cast-on, and was introduced to the wonders of the twisted rib – how I managed to never knit this simple stitch before is beyond me!
