My Gray Pearl is all done!

Yes, it's all done! I like it so much but I won't be able to wear it. When I finished the back, I sensed the fear that it was kind large . But I told myself not to worry, since it's my first time to knit a bolero. As I mentioned before, I found this pattern from an old magazine and the cut of these designs are kind strange, maybe it was the loose fashion of 80's. The armhole is huge, so I
could not narrow down the sleeves too much. Anyway, I am still happy with the final product and it will be a gift for one of my sisters. So, sisters take a look and I will pass a few more of my past FO's that did not fit me so well either. Umn, kind selfish! But my sisters forgive me because I am the "baby" of the family. ;)


Now you can level your head back....Sorry for the tilted photo! I was planning to redo it but the camera was full and I wanted to post asap so that I can go and knit more... :)
Here is a photo of the back. I actually wanted to show how much yarn was left out... My yarn calculation was great at least! hehe


I had a request for info on the pattern. It's an old Japanese magazine that I purchased at a LYS. It had a few designs that I liked so I asked the owner of the shop if she would sell it to me.


Before you start to think the reason of my failure on Gray Pearl is that I didn't do a swatch.....:), I 'll show you this


Yes, it's Caramel Popcorn all ready for me to wear. I decided to just crochet a simple border as I didn't have much yarn left either. And this one fits me really well and the cotton is so soft and cooling. I think this yarn is much suitable for crochet than knitting.

And last photo per Doreen's request! I got to wear Mint Tea on past Saturday. The necklace? Yeah, part of my creation too. The stones are Aquamarine with uneven pearls. I know my hair is not neat, my photographer didn't alert me! He was too busy asking "Mom, with the head or headless?"

Mint tea fits so well, the ragaln sleeves are just right. And the necklace goes so well with it too. The bolero turned out pretty too, lucky sister. Caramel popcorn also looks like another winner. Just love the things you knit, they turn out just great!

All of your knitting looks wonderful. I'm particularly taken with Mint Tea; just the right amount of texture and the sleeves are a great design detail. Very nice!
