Sizzling

I'm a little late to the party on this one.... but I finally finished Sizzle. Love the pattern! - hate the yarn I used, Knit Picks Shine, worsted. I have used Shine before, but this time I found the yarn to be very unevenly dyed, and it had quite a few large fuzzy slubs.... It just didn't make for a very polished knit. And, I've worn it for about 4 hours today, and it's completely stretched out of shape already.

Live and learn.

However, instead of being late to the next party, I've already cheated, casting on for Eiffel last night!! LOVE.THIS.PATTERN! I'm using Euroflax, in a beautiful eggplant color - wish me luck!

Looks great - thanks for the tip on the Knit Picks Shine too. I bet Euroflax will work wonderfully for the Eiffel as that is what the hemp reminded me of when I was doing my swatch.
