Deborah Newton's Buttercream Jacket. I loved this when I first saw it and it still got me excited. So, with a lot of pretty pink Geisha on hand, I swatched and it was perfect! Geisha is an acrylic with a little mohair blended in and is a lot softer and airier than the yarn intended. So this is less buttercream, more mousse. It's been my favorite knit this week. Probably because it's been a fast knit.
I did actually finish a project. It was nip and tuck and it's still not completely dry this morning. But Nefertiti was willing to risk pneumonia for my art. This is supposed to be a beret but I
But here are some that have only the barest of starts. Really barely there is this stole, Herb Garden by Linda Choo. I have twice as much of this pretty green toned lace weight wool as I need. Maybe I'll make two. Gotta get this one done first!
And a little more committed is this version of La Parisienne beret by Caroline Dlugy-Hegwer. I had a couple of odd balls of sock yarn. I'm not sure there's enough color definition because of the self-stripiness of the one yarn. But the blue bits are pretty. And it's an easy pattern for a little carry-along project.
Last, my White Lightning sock part 2. It's cast on and the cuff is knit. Now, I'm ready for the fun part. I think that this, the stocking and the beret above will be my projects to take on our upcoming trip to the Grand Canyon. Not that I expect to get a lot of knitting done. But it's good to be prepared. There may not be much of a stash post for the next couple of weeks.
