I've been doing a little sewing on the side with this delightful fabric. It's such a perfect combination--you'd never guess I had to snatch it up with my teeth while nursing Sebastian and wrangling Lucy in the store. I got just enough to make gifts, but as I work on them I've been plotting a delux project bag and matching zippered pouch or two for myself. I've been trying to use up every single scrap of it to put off the inevitable trip back for more. We'll see what I can squeak out.

Yarn Along: Cording Disaster
owls sweater and Outlander. There was a minor disaster this week, when the Knit Picks cable broke on me. I was at a lecture and hadn't brought along my tool kit, so I had to wait until I got home to swap it out. The handspun is toothy though, so the stitches just hung out waiting to be rescued. I scooped them all up onto an excessively long circular needle and tried it on. It needs about four more inches before I can join the sleeves.
