I've caught the WAVE!!!!

I finally started my Christmas knitting. I've decided to knit Wavy from Knitty for one of the ladies at work. We draw a name each year so I thought I'd give her some hand knitted goodness. I'm using Lorna Laces in the Jeans colorway. I bought this yarn off ebay and it came w/ a 2 sided knitted cable pattern that I find too confusing. Maybe it's the pressure of being under the Christmast Party deadline(December 22nd) but I just wasn't feeling the knitting love so I put frogged it and decided to go with Wavy. I'm only on row 5 (lol! :)) but I find it be a fun knit and I'm enjoying the ease of the patternPhotobucket - Video and Image Hosting
