I dug out my new yarn this morning, so hopefully tonight I will get to take some photographs before I go to bed and have a post up.
In the meantime, I am working on a cardigan. I haven't put it up on Ravelry yet, even though I started it on March 19th (I'm counting back using the different Saturdays I've been at the Knitters Brunch). On the 19th I kind of wiffle waffled. I didn't want to work on my socks or on my potholders, so I wandered around the shop and made eyes at all of the pretty yarns. The end result is the Little Springtime Jacket, a Lorna's Laces design. The pattern is pretty easy so far. I'm about halfway through the back (about to start the armholes), which isn't bad given that I have only worked on it for about 4 days total in that entire time. I do wish that the pattern had either a clearer black and white photo on the front or had a color image. The lace pattern is totally lost in the picture of the pattern.
I'm knitting this in the super thrifty Cascade 220 Sport. While I should be aOK with transitioning to spring fibers, I only feel warm enough in most buildings if I have a sweater or I'm sick. The more air conditioned the building, the more I reach for glorious heat trapping wool. If when I'm done the pattern I like it enough to make another, then I think I will pick a cotton yarn. I think I have enough in my stash, especially if I am willing to forgo the lace trim and make it striped or something similar.
