The Last Finished Project of 2010

Dear Mom,
Cast on sometime before Christmas and cast off last night, this is Daybreak, designed by Stephen West.

I used Claudia's Handpainted fingering weight wool and needed a little more than one skein of each color to finish. I can't find the tag for the lighter colorway, but the darker one is called Caribbean blue. I think I may have thrown the other label away along with wrapping paper.This was a pleasant, soothing project, with just enough to going on to keep it interesting but not too much to require total concentration. Plus it was a small enough project to have the end in sight, which is a total motivator to keep me knitting as fast as I can. 
Family fun and games tonight, so as much as I would like to knit in the New Year, in all honesty I know it isn't gonna happen.
Happy, Healthy, Safe and Serene New Year!
