The crowd I went to Rhinebeck with did a small item (less than 500 yards of yarn) swap this year. In a strange twist, I both made and received a small Springtime Bandit. I made Gwen's from Handmaiden Casbah; Ann made mine from some lovely navy blue sock yarn—Fiberphile Yarns & Hand-Dyed Fibers Alchemy 2-ply Squooshy Sock Yarn. (Rav link to Ann's project page)
Pattern: Springtime Bandit by Kate Gagnon Osborn
Yarn: Handmaiden Casbah Sock.I bought the yarn at Churchmouse on Bainbridge Island on the way home from Sock Camp in March.
Notions: 4 mm circular
Time: October 6 to 10, 2009
Comments: I added on repeat of the main leaf pattern so that I would use up as much of this fabulous yarn as I could.
