Chasing the Moonlight

Last week, I explained my problem with lace.  This week, I am happy to proclaim. . . I have conquered!

Here she is -- my Cinnamon Girl.  Named after the Neil Young song.

When I started using Ravelry to organize my knitting projects, connect with other knitters, and generally feed my addiction, I started to be more thoughtful about what to name my projects.  After a while, I settled on naming my projects after songs in my iPod playlist.  I'm often inspired by the color of the yarn, or the the style of the pattern, or the season, or even my mood.  But the project often. . . sings to me!

I love my Cinnamon Girl!  The yarn is light and soft.  The pattern is great.  The fall colors are some of my favorites.  The lace is just lovely -- totally worth giving up wine for!  In fact. . . (as the song says). . . I could be happy the rest of my life with a Cinnamon Girl!

What next?  I'm swatching for Uhura, Connie Chang Chinchio's divine tank from the summer issue of the Twist Collective.  My Ravelry project link is here.  I'm calling it. . . Brown-Eyed Girl.
