I just finished binding off The Ice Queen. The pattern can be found over at Knitty. I used Cascade Yarn Baby Alpaca. I knit version A of the pattern. I really like the end product, the process was a bit of a struggle at first, but once I got going all went well. I also left off the beads. I am still trying to decide if i am keeping it or gifting it to my mom. I am wearing it now trying to make up my mind.
Now I am going to knit the Helena sweater for the older sister.
