a tam o'shanter in Wisconsin!

I know I've taken a brief hiatus from the blog scene, but I just finished a very intense week of coursework, projects, exams, and papers. It all went well, but basically it equaled having no time for knitting. That all changed today which was my day of relaxation!

Do any of you remember this?
















Well, since I'm not one to let anything go to waste, those two grey balls of Rowan Ribbon Twist were fashioned into something new! Lets have a look shall we?














Is that a pom pom you see peaking out from behind? That'd be correct. And I love it. Here are the stats:

Pattern: Mercy - Rowan ribbon twist collection
Designer: Kim Hargreaves
Yarn of Choice: Rowan Ribbon Twist in Rocky - 2 skeins
Needles: 11's for 3 rows and then SIZE 17's for the rest! yeah!
Cast on: 11/8
Cast off: 11/9

Much love for this tam.
