holidaze knits

pattern: Porom
designer: Jared Flood
yarn: Louisa Harding Grace Silk & Wool
needles: 16 inch circs in US #6 & #8

big purple porom

I am still in a bit of a holidaze, so just a quick post and run here. I am happy to report that my mother-in-law loved the Porom I knit for her. In turn, I loved knitting her a Porom. I am all about the quick and easy yet lovely knits, and this pattern certainly fit that bill. To a non-knitter, it probably looks waaaaaaaaaaaay fussier to knit than it actually was. Score! It was a breezy dream come true! The Louisa Harding was a delight to knit with, also. I need to pick up some more of this Grace yarn for a project for myself, possibly for a slouchy Fern Glade. I am really digging the slouchy hats lately. Of course, I won't be able to cast-on for that until I finish some more holiday knitting. Since I wasn't able to finish what I had in mind for Matt in time for Xmas, I am going to try to get it done in time for his birthday, which is New Year's Day. So I had better get back to my knitting over here. Hope you all had a fabulous holiday, folks!

I have it on the needles right now. Your increases from the ribbing are really inperceptible. How did you do your m1's? Thanks for cluing me in to Fern Glade.
