Nomination

I'd like to nominate Bella Paquita by Marnie MacLean. The photos on the pattern page just don't do it justice, so here's a better one from Ravelry/Flickr:



Oh, and did I mention it's a free pattern?

Oh, I like that! I had only seen the pics on the pattern page and hadn't been that excited about it - but that picture changed my mind! Thanks for posting!

Yes, yes, yes ... enough said ;-)

Hmmm, I'm thinking that the flickr/ravelry picture is sooooooo much more attractive/fits different than the pattern - I wonder what kind of modifications this person did? Was this another picture from the person who wrote the pattern? If I can make mine look that good, I'd vote for that one, too!

Paquita is already on my Ravelry queue, and I plan to make it with a merino-silk blend. Love it!

Wowie that flickr picture makes me want to run out and buy the yarn right now! Wonder if it had any modifications?

This would be a great KAL knit - really pretty end product, and I can imagine it would generate a lot discussion among the group about possible modifications, etc.

I ... (counting) thirteenth this nomination!
