The frothy mohair delight, destined for a Nashua Handknits book next year. I normally don't love knitting mohair, but I found their Creative Focus Kid Mohair to be a lot less "sticky" and prickly than some of the others I've worked with. I enjoyed working with it and was shocked when I finished this (rather large project) in just 1 week. Yes, I love the buttons too. The whole thing turned out so gorgeous that I wish I could show it all.
Next up, something pink for a book called Knit on Down (all top-down patterns) that is coming out next year. This one is in SWTC Tofutsies, which I love. Yes, it can be a bit splitty if you're not careful, but it washes so beautifully and is so cool and soft when worn that I don't care. And it's not just for socks, you know.
Today it's down to tech editing land and both finishing the last edging on a top in Tilli Tomas Plie and working on another design for SWTC in their Yin and Yang yarns- in really pretty charcoal grey.
In other news, Emma started her new ballet class yesterday and really liked it-- I got in some knitting time while I waited, which was nice. I also squeezed in a few rows knitting at the blood drive at her school, but unfortunately it ended up being an "I tried" situation... apparently I'm a bit too anemic at the moment. Good excuse for a cheeseburger, though!
