This May Take A While!

The hoodie is coming along beautifully 🙂 I LOVE the lace way more than I expected I would. It’s so great when this happens! Now here’s hoping the size is correct (I foolishly didn’t adjust my stitch count to the guage I’m getting with this yarn)…as far as I can tell it should be ok and I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I can always start again, it’s only knitting, lol.

It’s a slow knit for me…I’m just now at the beginning of the increases for the back.

It was the last day of school today… 🙂

Silky Soft…

I’m going to have to do a fibre test on this yarn because I’m so curious! It’s a mystery cone from the second hand store. I’m loving the great deals!

I’m using it to make the Apres Surf Hoodie from the summer IK. My guage is off but I’m going ahead with it anyways…the yarn is a little on the fine side of sock weight. It is so SOFT that I can’t figure out what it is. I’ve never felt cashmere but I’m wondering. Or maybe it has silk in it. It’s going to be the most beautiful sweater, that much I do know 🙂 The drape is excellent!
