So happy....

I present to you a body...

and a sleeve...



I finally got to cast on for the Main Street Pullover from WEBS. Why does this make me so happy? Well the shallowest reason is probably that it's finally something for me. I've finally finished/gave up on my Christmas knitting, depends on how you look at it. I might have shortened the list of gifts to knit for people but hey, it's a finished list now isn't it? But really probably more so is the yarn and the pattern for this sweater. First of all the Lenox yarn is delish. It is so soft, but not like mushy-fall apart in your hands soft, it still has some body to it which I really like. Secondly, this may make me a bore but I'm just a sucker for stockinette in the round. Boring I know, but I just love it. So relaxing, I can almost do it without looking. Today I worked on it while watching Funny Face and drinking Bigelow Gingersnap Tea (also delish). Warm beverage, Audrey Hepburn, Gershwin, baby alpaca and merino. What else can you ask for from a Sunday afternoon?

Sounds like a lovely Sunday afternoon! I'm looking forward to seeing how the sweater knits up. I'll have to pick up some Ginger Snap tea.

Hooray for fun new projects! Down with deadline knitting! (i'm starting a new movement here, ha ha).
Damn, my store doesn't have gingersnap tea! It sounds goooood.

The mini Le Creuset pots sound really cute. I'll have to stop by Sur La Table and check them out. Now that's a store where it's darn easy to blow my budget quickly.

Your sweater is a very beautiful colour and you can't go wrong with stockinette. It shapes so well.
