Yarn Along- Springtime Bandit




I just finished this Springtime Bandit. I really enjoyed knitting it. I decide to use this yarn for my first try at this pattern.  I am sure I will make it again.  Next time I am hoping to make it with my hand spun yarn.  As I was knitting it I wasn't sure what the final product was going to look like. The pattern didn't have a picture of it laid out flat. As I was knitting it reminded me of a peacock.  When I was done casting it off and held it up for the first time I was so happy to see the final result.

We went to the zoo this week and while we were there we saw lots of peacock, so in case you wanted to see some peacock pictures.  I have included them below and with the first picture.
