As you might remember, I bought a bit of yarn at Stitches West. *blush*
Well I've already completed one item from that yarn, yay me! I give you
Hey, mooch! (usually known as Hey Teach)(actually I am keeping the top for myself and not giving it to anyone at all.)(excuse the tshirt, I was too lazy to change)
The buttons have holographic glitter in their centres, not that you can tell in this pic. It turns out that I am not the only person to think that holographic sparkle glitter is the bees knees and very worthy of being in a button. (I got them from Jo-ann's and they didn't cost very much.)
And here is a close up shot of the lace pattern, nicely modelled on one of my more shapely parts but looking oddly flat.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Stella, silk blend, 7.5 balls or so
Needle: 5mm (US 8)

This was a pretty quick knit and easy, given that I am working actively on three other projects. Just as well I am a, umm, what is the polite phrase for stay at home bludger these days? I am sure you can come up with a few! And I really like the yarn - it is tougher than it looks though I ended up busting some of it whilst seaming and arguing with a knot. I'll be able to wear this against my skin and that is something I really like :-)
