American Swedish Institute and Frances Revisited

I went to the American Swedish Institute last Friday with my mom for the Bohus exhibit. The exhibit itself was great - wow, what amazing work. I wish I could have taken pictures. This was all I got:

However, this clever knitter captured everything before she got busted with her camera: The Heathen Housewife. It is definitely worth checking out the Heathen Housewife's photos and those on the ASI site - this knitting is amazing.

Ok, finally....a FO. Frances Revisited:

Yarn: Cascade 200 Heathers
Pattern: Frances Revisited
Size: difficult to say - I knitted about 4 stitches to an inch on size 8s
I knitted this over Christmas on size 10s and didn't like the gauge, so I redid it on smaller needles. This was a very easy pattern to modify - knit from the top down until it fits over your neck and bust, then put some arm stitches on a waste yarn and carry on. This is a free pattern by Beth Silverstein - pattern available on Ravelry.

Bad pictures, but I was anxious to get something posted! Now I have to take some picture sof the Columbia Beret, women's mittens from Opinionated Knitter, and a lace cowl. I am getting there - getting caught up!
