Pattern: Midwest Moonlight by Ivy Bigelow from Scarf Style. Love this pattern for this yarn, and it's very easy and effective.
Yarn: 5x50g balls of Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Lustre. I fell in love with this colour when this yarn first came out, even though I don't really wear orange or have much orange stuff. But in the last year or so, orange is a colour I've come to really like, particularly as an accent - it really pops!Sticks: KnitPicks Options, 4.5mm
Time: I had to hunt out my knitting diary from last year to check ... 20 September 2007 - 22 April 2008.What I learnt: to pick the right yarn for the pattern - I started Backyard Leaves (also from Scarf Style) in this yarn, and it just didn't work, the yarn was too fuzzy and drapey for that kind of pattern, but for this one, it works great!
