Finished Sweater: "Into The Woods". I think I might post the pattern ... eventually. It worked up fairly quickly (despite Kingston running out of yarn for two frustrating weeks). I'm now obsessed with double stranding; it's just so clever.

I'm working on items for shows again which means I need a real knitting challenge to counter act all the jumbo gauge crocheting. (I'm not doing the Knitting Olympics, though. Way too much pressure thank you.) I want to try elann's lace shell with cap sleeves but I've frogged it about five times now. A lot of that has been my fault, not keeping track of raglan vs lace increases, but I swear it's a weird pattern. If anyone has tried it please let me know. I figure if I get the knack, I can substitute other laces into it. ooooh, and a slight peplem. Will try and blog more.... Soundtrack: "The Maritimes", Classified, "Twenty Something", Dala

I am making the lace shell you speak of actually, I was knitting it for the knitting olympics but didn't finish in time. It was my first big lace project (I prepped myself with Isabeau, thanks Sylvie!) and its really working out. Check out my blog for pics if you want.

i also linked you on my blog, because I will be reading you with my morning cuppa... hope you don't mind!
