Dudes: What up?
Swatched: 22nd July 2008
Started: 24th July 2008
Finished: 05th November 2008
Yarn: "Carpe Diem" from Lang Yarns; 70% merino, 30% alpaca
Needles: 5.5 cm / 80 cm Addi Turbos
Pattern: "Putting Down Roots" from "Inspired Cabled Knits" by Fiona Ellis
Modification: Using bigger needles and yarn, so less pattern repeats. Will be eliminating the turned cuffs and the turtle-neck for ribbed cuffs and v-neck. I also added the ribbing at the bottom of the body, too.

Ok, it's the week after halloween, and its time to get the christmas tree out and the decorations up. I have finished 6 stockings, they all look good I think.
