Yay! Finished right front of Lucky tonight. Moving along quickly, though I'm going to be sad when I'm no longer knitting with my cashmere. Hopefully I don't get too attached, I really don't have enough time to get a 2nd job to support my cashmere dependence!
And speaking of dependence, I really need to stop checking out what other people are doing in blogland. It's really bad for the wallet! So here's another project to add to the ever growing list: Hot Lava Cardigan. Found out about this pattern while checking out Winnie's blog (fellow knitter from Lucky KAL). Bought this lovely shade of deep purple/plum Manos for the project at Woolgathering in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. My boyfriend and I have been traveling a bit on the weekends so wherever we are headed, I always make sure to check if there are any stores in the area. I knew the store in PA carried Manos - and it was all over from there.
And in other news, finally should be receiving 11 balls of Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Chunky to knit my boyfriend his cable sweater soon. Apparently it has been sent from England about the 1st of April. Didn't think shipping took that long, but since I have plenty of other projects on my plate, I don't mind waiting (Plus the yarn was pretty cheap - always a patience maker). I'm especially patient since he is going to be begging me to start as soon as the yarn comes in. Nevermind that summer is coming - he wants his sweater now! I made a deal that it will be done before the first sign of Fall - promise!
