....I'm running out of yarn on the Honeymoon Cami. Worse still, my LYS has none and are in flux with ordering since Susan is out with back problems, so I had to order more online. After searching around forever, I found the right colorway and at a reasonable price, but the shipping! Grrr...I could have gotten two more skeins for what I paid. Grrr....

After a glorious few days of 60+, we are back into the cold. Nothing like a month ago, but it hardly feels like spring either. Just I can't be happy today....

The cami is moving along nicely....having Sharon and Denise over yesterday for hours of knitting and chatting sure helped! I wish my monitor showed the colors better...it's much richer in purples than it looks. And I'm not finding the yarn so tricksy...when it splits, it IS a pain but, for the most part it's pretty easy to keep it together.

Honeymoon Cami

I have decided (after several attempts) to make this cami for Amy. I'm not sure how much of a challenge it will be to have her 1000 miles away and thus not able to try it on as I go, but I'm willing to give it a shot. The different patterns I tried using the Mission Falls cotton just didn't work, I'll be making this in Berocco Cotton Twist which I recently got off Ebay. It's a great colorway - blues and purples - called "Tiedye" and I like the sheen. Now if only I can get gauge, I'll be off and running.

I joined a KAL for this pattern and can't wait to get started!

Chelsea's "Senior Socks"

Rather than do a sports theme for the "Go Team" pattern (the newest 6sox), I decided to honor my daughter (a senior next year) with socks using her school colors, logo and date. Nice to know I nearly have one Christmas gift done!

Maxi Ringels

Finished! I never dreamed I do an entire pair of socks in ribbing, but I love the way these turned out and, even more, the way they fit! I needed something brainless after the Opal sweater.
