Flared Lace Smoke Ring
Motorcycle jacket totally optional.
This went too fast to blog about, even - and truth be told, I felt a little shamefaced over breaking my lace ban so quickly and over knitting something so visible in such a frivolous color. BUT - 1) it went so quickly it hardly even counts; 2) it's really cold outside, so this was utility knitting and 3) I just liked the idea of a pink wimple . So it was totally justified, and neccessary, and harmless, and...and...and don't you judge me.
