I finished up the Twilight Saga this afternoon (finally!) and now I can get back to real life...
I bought some yarn a few weeks ago at an LYS 20% off sale so now I've got two projects in my queue.
For this pattern, I purchased two skeins of the softest, hand-dyed (50% Merino Wool/50% wool) from Louisa Harding: Grace Hand-dyed
And for this sweater I picked up 14 skeins of Mission Falls 1824 Wool in Pistachio. It's a 100% superwash merino, so hopefully it won't be too scratchy.
I want to make a bigger dent on my zig afghan before I start another project, so I've been busily knitting away on this strip over the past few weeks. Before I started the pattern, I hadn't realized that it's basically just knitting up 8 bias knit scarves and sewing them together into an afghan. Scarves are not really my thing anymore because I get so bored with them, so hopefully I won't run out of steam on this project!
And I'll leave you with a few happy pictures from our house this afternoon:
