I love it when a knit comes together!

One of the great things about knitting a garment in one piece (besides no-to-minimal seaming, of course) is having something on your needles that actually looks like a garment.Yeah - that's the Lore hoodie. Just the hood and front bands left to go! Provided nothing catastrophic happens, I expect this baby will be off the needles by the end of the weekend.

That's of course.....
if someone will give it back.

In other fibre news - I stopped up at Mom's to do a little WCY business, and brought home a minor stash enhancement.Two skeins of Fluffy Cat Lite in Vampy (same colour as the hoodie) to knit Rock Island (once Aeolian is done, of course).
And a skein of Top Cat DK in Verdant. This one is for a new design.

And - neither of these count toward my "Surmount" because they are WCY! Both will be knit this year anyway.

And... if you'd like to do a little stash enhancement for yourselfWe've got a new yarn coming soon - Continental Cat - 100% superwash merino in a light fingering weight - with a whopping 750 yards per skein! I expect some of this will be in the shop by the end of the month, so watch for more details.

I've also heard rumours of a 100% silk base in the near future..... stay tuned!

I've read through some of the finished Lore Hoodies, and many people have modified the hood etc. Are you going to knit it on, without casting off, and picking up stitches for it too? And I like it so much better with long sleeves. Very clever to do the lace part on it. Love it!
Verdant, oh how beautiful it is!
