Rockefeller finished!

In my blogging absence, I've been busy finishing Rockefeller! It was finished waaaaay back on August 14, but it took me some time to block it, have Scott take photos, and then upload photos! I am way happy it is finished and am so pleased with it!


Rockefeller


Pattern: Rockefeller by Stephen West, it was a Mystery KAL

Yarn: I ended up using FOUR different yarns because I kept running out... Color A (white) is Regia Extra Twist Merino and Classic Elite Alpaca Sox (I only needed the Sox for about four inches of a tip). Color B is Mountain Colors Crazyfoot in Big Sky and Mountain Tango. Big Sky was my initial color and is the mostly blue section, and Mountain Tango was used for the wings.
Needles: 3.00 mm
Modifications: none!

This was my first mystery knit-a-long and it was very exciting and fun! I have a feeling there are two different types of mystery knit-a-longers... One type who never look at the spoiler photos until they have completely finished knitting that clue, and the second type (me) who peeks at spoiler photos to see what they are in for. I just can't help myself :)

I have several projects going on right now, one is an order and has a deadline so I'm quickly knitting it. Pictures soon (psst...it's a monkey!). I am also putting together projects for the road because in less than one week we are taking a vacation to the Oregon coast!!! I am completely psyched :) We will be gone for ten days, camping, hiking, swimming, knitting, reading, driving, ..... !

Happy weekend friends!
