We're finally caught up after the BIG snow closed down Seattle last week. Good knitting time and a little spinning. I cast on Lillian Fay by Ellen Mason a week ago with the personal challenge of getting it done in time to wear at Madrona Winter Retreat. Using stash yarn, Jamieson's Shetland Heather and am tracking progress here: Ravelry - Lillian Fay . So far, so good. A little more than 4 leaf motif repeats completed so far. I like it and it's fairly quick knitting, when I have the time.
My "reward" for finishing the sweater is to knit socks from this:
Perry the Platypus in 2 different bases from Nalani Yarns. Top is 80/20 merino/nylon blend, bottom is 100% superwash wool. Can't wait to see the stripes in these! Thinking of doing Tectonic by Lorraine Ehrlinger
Oh, if you live in the Seattle area, Weaving Works is having a 25% off any yarn or fiber that contains wool ends tomorrow 1/28/12.
