FO: Quimper

I finished Quimper just an hour or so before leaving for the party last Friday night - talk about under the gun!

This was a lovely knit, and though it doesn't photograph well because of the black yarn, I'm pleased with it.

It stretched out quite a bit in blocking, but drapes super nicely and will go with everything. Hooray!

I didn't use as much yarn as I expected. I think I used about five balls in the end of Elann Luna in ebony. I knit the whole thing on US 2 1/2 (3 mm) except for the sleeves on US 4 (3.5mm) needles. I actually realized later that I think the main body portion, under the sleeves (it's knit top down) should have been on the larger needles. I like it knit on the smaller needle though, and it's plenty big enough. I knit the 34" size, and it covers my 36" measurement just fine, though of course it's designed to hang a bit open in the front. And I had the perfect button from my travels to DC last June :)

So we have the first of what I hope will be a few FO posts this December...
