To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

I just finished the Flora pattern from knitty.com just in time for my friend's christmas present  Grin.  We exchanged gifts on Christmas Eve so technically i was a little early even.  You can see her here modeling the finished product.  Although it was a fairly fast knit, it was still interesting, especially the twisted i-cord, and challenging to get done in time.  Take a look and tell me what you think Wink.

You did a great job, and your friend looks really happy with it. I love the colors you chose, you can wear that with all sorts of things.

It turned out very nicely.  So elegant and dressy.   What a lucky friend.

Loverly!!!!!

What yarn did you use? The white seems to have a sparkly to it - or maybe it is just it's pristine beauty.  Also did you make yours longer?

Nice! The contrasting flower looks really good, and I like the button you chose.

Thanks all for the great comments.  The yarn used was Kyoto by Artfibers in San Francisco (awesome store  Wink) and a random blue yarn called Filandia that I bought at a Yarn Lady Bag Sale in June.

The hat was a gift from another crafty friend.  It was a modification of a Jimmy Bean pattern.  I dolled it up a bit with the pin instead of the bow and tried to act the era for the pic.  Have to say it is probably one of my best pics.

simple, beautiful. . . I love it!  I thought of making this for my mother-in-law for Christmas, but wasn't too sure, because the picture with the pattern looked too bulky. . . but seeing this, I'm inspired. . . love the hat and the era attitude too!!
