Last night was a fun night of knitting and sushi -- ALWAYS a good combo, if you ask me. I was able to catch up with Kristin before her wedding mania begins and she becomes completely unavailable (hehe, just kidding, Miss) and the Tivoli was treated to a public outing -- it's first (aww).
You can see my progress on the Tivoli above. It doesn't look like I've gotten very far, mainly because I'm using a finer-weight yarn, but all things considered (work schedule, social obligations, sleep deprivation), I think I'm progressing along nicely.
In addition to adding a chocolate bottom with a striped degradation, I'm planning on adding a very subtle chocolate edging to the neckline for color balance. And, if the cap sleeves work out, there may be some minor degradation to a slight chocolate band to match the body treatment.
Why do I always have to complicate everything? This is supposed to be my ZEN project!
Oh well. :-)
Below, you can see another one of my recent stash acquisitions: Reynolds Odyssey in the Brown Mix colorway.
I can't believe people don't mention this stuff more often. It is amazingly soft and luscious and the colorways are gorgeous. I'd like to make an entire sweater out of this colorway, but ASA only had two balls. So these will end up being...you guessed it...SOCKS!
It IS The Summer of Socks, after all -- in MY world, anyway. ;-)
