FO: Taos Bandit
The last of the Christmas gifts for yet another sister. Luckily we are having our holiday get-together on New Years Day this year, so I finished it in time. I bought this yarn while on vacation in Taos at a little yarn shop off the plaza. It's a light fingering weight merino/mohair. Love it, love it! The subtle colors remind me of the desert.

Pattern: Springtime Bandit
Yarn: Schaefer Yarn Anne in colorway Aung San Suu Kyi
