There has been some knitting going on, even though the updates have been sparse lately. This, however, is the first finished item in about two months. I liked the fit of my first Cria so much I decided a while ago I would knit a second one. However, enough time had passed that previous experience was of no help getting through the tricky beginning, since I'd forgotten pretty much everything about the last time (and the little I did remember was incorrect). So, the difficulty level was the same as the first time around, but I'm also equally happy with the results. Madelinetosh pashmina has a lovely sheen and drape, and I don't think this will be my only time using this yarn. And Ysolda's Cria pattern still holds its place as the best-fitting sweater pattern I've knit so far.
