Ta daaaaaah!

This week I finished a project that has been in my WIP bucket for about 5 months.
 
Here it is:

 
I am so happy with it!
 
The pattern is called Lantern Pullover by Cristina Mershon and appeared in Crochet! Today in the March/April edition of 2012.
 
 
It's a great pattern, very easy to follow and at the same time pretty.
 
The pattern calls for Sport / 5 ply yarn but I used King Cole Mirage DK. I've used this yarn before and I think it's thinner than the average DK / 8 ply so I thought I'd give it a try and it turned out just fine.
 
It's a lovely yarn to work with pretty stripes that appear as you work. It's 50% wool and 50% acrylic and really warm and snugly.

The Christmas tree in the town where we live has been lit this weekend:
 
 
I love the mix of blue with the white stars.

How is your weekend going so far?
 
I have got one more Christmas present to finish and I am trying to finish my WIPS. I am going to make a New Year's resolution to keep my WIPs under control next year so I am desperately trying to finish all my current projects before the end of the year :)
 
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
