Je Suis Jolie Mitts, Frill Collar, & Crusoe Socks in progress

"Je Suis Jolie Mitts" by Clara Parkes in Knitscene Fall '06
"Frill Collar" by Emily Bixler
in Knitscene Fall '06
Yarn: 4 skeins of Elsebeth Lavold Angora (019)
Needles: Clover Bamboo Sz 6

This yarn is super soft and warm and the color is absolutely beautiful. I made the mitts shorter than the pattern. My only problem with the collar is that it turned out very floppy. I expected a stiffer Elizabethan-style collar. But I love wearing it anyway and if I make another I'll try another yarn.

"Crusoe Socks" in Spr '03 -- so far so good. I'm working with Cascade Sassy Stripes
