Pretty pretty!

Lucy distributed the sock yarn club skein for January, and it's a winner. The colors are even better in person, the flash has caught the highlights. She describes the process of creating this in her blog last week. It's skeins like this that make you glad you're in the club, and makes me look forward to anytime she posts updates to her Etsy store.

I've given myself permission to put the Baby Surprise Commuting Jacket project on hold for February, since Afghans for Afghans has asked for socks for kids ages 7-18, up to women's size large, by March 7. I had wanted to get back to socks for a while but my sock collection is large enough that I really don't need more socks. This will allow me to use up some of the collection for a good cause.

Tonight I'll take a gauge off of the Regia 4-ply swatch, do some math and hopefully cast on for the next sweater. I'm thinking a further modification to the traditional EPS saddle-shoulder, since I find the neck is big and gets bigger over time. I think I need to make the saddles longer so that it will come in closer to the neck. The size 1 fabric is much better than the size 2 fabric, I'll have firm numbers tonight.

I love it too - can't wait to see what you do with it, Patience!
I'm so glad it is such a hit. I can't wait to see if it is as pretty knit up as it is in the skein!
