Leading off: Central Park Hoodie
I finally threw my fears of "it won't fit" into the wind and blocked my CPH. It's almost dry and is looking yummy. Yes, my sleeves will probably be too long but who cares! I want to wear my first sweater already... even if it is 65 degrees out.

Second batter: Just Like a Peasant Cap
Such a fun pattern with the most delicious Malabrigo yarn. Unfortunately, I ran out of the yarn and need to find more. I put a call into What's Needling U in Frisco, CO where I bought it. Knit NY also has some, but it's not the same colorway. Hmm...

Newest Arrival: Anastasia Socks
My first toe-up socks! Go me! And it was fairly easy. With a crochet cast-on as my provisional and a straightforward short-row toe [from the pattern and on knitty], I was good to go. I was rather impressed with how it worked. And the pattern is fun, easy to memorize and does work well with a variegated yarn. And the yarn - Colinette Jitterbug in Fruit Coulis I got at Loop in Islington, London.

Batting clean-up: More Yarn!
No pics yet, but lovely mommy gave me trekking sock yarn and some fresh-from-the-farm handspun from the Poconos. Yup - yarn handspun from sheep raised in the Poconos. Thanks Mommy!

Next up: Finish these damn projects, young lady!

Can't wait to see your CPH... perhaps making it's debut in CO? Oh, and a visit What's Needling U is definetly on the schedule at somepoint.
