I did it!

Holy Shit! I actually have an FO!!! The first one since the Mother's Day shawl!! Whoa.

Unfortunately it's a seekrit. I can't show it until the recipient gets it. Which will be over a month from now. In the mean time, here's what I can tell you. It's Manos. Colorway 119. It's the first time I have used Manos, and damned if I don't like it! It's nice and soft and knits up fast. It's a little pricey for me, but for what I did with it, I could see using it for Christmas gifts and getting away with quite an affordable Christmas.

Here's a close-up, so you can see the colorway/yarn without seeing the actual knit.

I love the way Manos feels when knitting. I kinda want to undo the wrap I made last year just so I can knit with it again.

Can't wait to see the whole object!

Ooh, gorgeous! Now I want to know what it is... ;-) Well, I guess we'll find out in a month.

I've never gotten to knit with Manos.. gonna have to try that sometime, when I have money.
