The Ivel coat now has two sleeves. I love how the increases are incorporated into the centre of the sleeve, not just cast on at the ends, giving the sleeve a tailored look, almost like a proper dart. I also love how snuggly soft it is - it's going to be very warm coat for winter next year.
And because you need a break from a project like a coat, I began what Susan Pandorf calls 'an aperitif - a quick knit'. Her Leaves of Grass scarf is such a gorgeous knit, and I think is perfect for the deliciously coloured merino/silk yarn that I've had in my stash for some time.
And, something else, chomping at the bit for a bit of needle time. It's a knitpicks pallette kit for Eunny Jang's Autumn Rose pullover - a project I'm doing as a knitalong with my friend Donna. She very generously bought me this kit for Christmas. She's already started hers, and she's a lightning fast knitter, so I'll be trailing along behind very soon though, as I can't stop thinking about this project, my very first fair isle (the only other colourwork I've done is the endpaper mitts, also by Eunny Jang, which I gave away in a swap).
I also have a few designs up there floating around, one of them I like very much, I have a problem getting the time and the inspiration to hit at the same moment.
