The Latest WIP

I alluded to the return of my knitting mojo in my last post. I've been wanting to knit Sunrise Circle for some time now, and finally cast on, with the yarn I bought for that purpose, no less! Here is a partly completed left half:



This side is now complete, and I'm about half done with the right side sleeve/front combo. The yarn is Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran, and it is quite nice to knit with, I wish I had more of it. It makes a nice firm but soft fabric knit a little tight like is is for this pattern.

Spinning continues as well - the below is about 225yds of worsted 3ply from HelloYarn Fiber Club, way back from June 2007. It is 18-micron merino and it is indescribably soft. We're approaching hat season and I think this will make a fine one for Miss Dizzle. Yum.

I love the Kathmandu yarns. There is a tweedy light purple one that I've been eyeing for years. I guess if I still like it by the time I knit down some more stash, I should get it!

I can't wait to see your Sunrise sweater finished. It's such a pretty shade of green!
