Dashing...


My dashing are done! These were so fun to do!! I used some undyed llama, alpaca, merino blend that was hand spun by a wonderful little 70 year old woman here in Denver. Unfortunately the lovely deep color does not come through in my photos. This was a fun, fast pattern, about 4 hours with the finishing - all quick, mindless and easy! These were on my list of items to knit to insure that denver does not get any more snow... (denverites are all very fragile now and another snow would turn us into whiney little imps). Its close to 80 outside today, so no arm warmers for me. The next time its in the 50's I may bare my white arms to give these a wear with a t-shirt before putting them away for next fall...

Happy Knitting!!
