Finished the Duster

It's been a long time since I posted. I just have not been in the mood. I've updated ravelry but just have not posted here.

I finished the Tilted Dusted and I love the way it turned out. The blue is such a beautiful color. I have leftover yarn so I am thinking of making myself a pair of Fetching. My hands are always freezing cold. With Fetching, I can type away at the computer all day at work and keep my hands warm. I'll even see if I can knit with them on, too -- we'll see.

Here are some pictures of my duster.
