About two days ago, I only had one row and the bind off to do, but fell ill, finishing yesterday. Today I only had to block and was lucky enough to get photos before the rain came down. So, officially, International Bright Young Thing – by Jesus Jones – is finished.

Immediately, I knew the stockinette with purl ridges was going to be the best stitch pattern for this yarn. As easy as this pattern was to follow, I still had several screw ups related to extra yarn overs on the purl side.

As for the yarn, I think I received it from an old acquaintance. It was nice to work with except for the tendency to split. This combined with the dark color was a little annoying, but I set up a light by my bed that helped me to knit better while watching television at night.
