[knitting] Fox Paws

I've been working on this project since January but I finally finished Fox Paws:

Fox Paws


I used Knit Picks Palette yarn- one ball each of five colors. The yarn is currently on sale for $3 per ball, which makes this a project (if you use the same yarn) that only costs $15 for yarn and $6 for the pattern.

I'm not quite ready to jump back into doing this pattern again but the urge is there- it's an ingenious design and I want to see how it would look with another combinations of colors. I think instead I might pick a different pattern with stacked stitches by the same designer. After I'm done admiring this:

It's folded and put away- to be entered into the Fair in September. Then I'm sure I'll we wearing it nonstop all winter...

TGIF. Was teaching this week- looking forward to a chill weekend. The only obligation is a nephew's grad party on the other side of the state. Going to cut some rhubarb at my mom's after work today so I'll be making a rhubarb something.
