A quick knit

My Uncle Bill lives in Montana, and the last time that I talked to him, he asked if I could knit a dickey for him "like Grandma used to make."

I was happy to oblige:Elizabeth Zimmermann's "Beethoven's Variations on a Dickey" from Wool Gathering #40 (also in Knitting Around and on the KA DVD). Knit with 1 skein of Berroco Ultra Alpaca on size 4 needles. This was a fast knit - it took about 2-1/2 days with time off for the cortisone shot in my wrist (and a splint).

I have a bunch of different colors of this yarn - maybe I'll make some for me! After I finish this sweater (in the new City Tweed!) for KnitPicks...
