I'm reading Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting, edited by Ann Hood, and steadily working away on Lucy's raspberry cardigan.
my sister, I cast on an Audrey hat as part of the Fringe Hatalong. I'm using a sumptuous tweed yarn I obtained at the CNY Fiber Festival a couple of years ago. It's a blend of alpaca, yak, and sari silk, aptly called yakapaca. I've been saving this yarn for something truly special, when I really ought to just enjoy it now. I started the hat on our anniversary, which makes it all the more festive. I want to be sure the yarn won't melt into a puddle, as alpaca is wont to do, so I knit the ribbing on size 4 needles, at a painfully tight gauge.
