You know, I was dreaming of spring, of fast, light, cotton knits. Thinking about what I can do with the lovely cottons I’ve got. Wondering how to construct a top out of the Aurora like the one that I’ve got in my mind…along with a skirt to match.

Then old man winter rears his head again and dumps another 10 cm of snow.

Oh well, gotta knit the woolies while you can, right? I’m actually rather impressed that I’ve resisted the urge to cast on for some sort of new project, and I’m sort of past the craving now. I’m just about up to the toe decreases on the Lorna’s sock, and am making good headway on the yoke of the Retro-Prep. So there will be some FO’s in the near future – about time!

I did some blog housekeeping – updated my FO gallery (I’ll hopefully be working on that soon, make it a little more user-friendly) and put up a link to the top-down pattern. I’ve been getting hits from the Knitter’s Review Forums, where someone nice posted a link to my pattern!

where is spring?

Both of the Retro-Prep sleeves are finito. I’m just working on the last few inches of the body, then I’ll put allllll those stitches onto one needle and do the yoke. Getting closer!

The Canada Post truck came today (Sunday – weird) and dropped off my package of cotton yarns from Elann. First up, some Esprit for a summer top, and some Aurora, probably for a top as well:

The Ruby is a nice, true red. I also got some Pronto – the askew ball is the one I took out of the package.

I hope that I ordered enough for a sweater – probably going to do the “Cashmere Pullover” from Weekend Knitting. Soon as I finish my other projects, that is…

Having a meltdown re: school, so I’m going to a movie tonight. I’ll take the Lorna’s sock in the hopes of getting up to the toe!
