I'm finally done with my second knitting project :cheering:
This is the Arctic Throw (http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/arctic/arctic.html) pattern knit in Berroco Air. Took me a month and a half, and this is going to be my sister's birthday gift next week.
Btw, the yarn although expensive is divine.

You knit so very evenly! Does your gauge ever change?

Thanks for all the kind comments, everyone. It's been almost a week since I finished this project and I'm really missing working on it.

Simply stunning! She better gasp when she opens the box!

Yep, she better! I actually started knitting in late Aug and never told her I'm learning to knit 'cuz I wanted her birthday gift to be a surprise. I took pictures at various stages and places I took the knitting to and made up a cute document to put in the box. She sure is in for a surprise!

You knit so very evenly! Does your gauge ever change?
Oh that's such a nice compliment... thank you. I found that keeping the working yarn loose helps a lot. Also discovered (much to my dismay) that watching tv while trying to knit a pattern however familiar is NOT a good idea :)
