Third Time's The Charm!

I swatched and I swatched and I swatched the morning away yesterday. For my Waves-of-Lace tank, that is. As it turns out, the Wollmeise, which is what I wanted to use in the first place but thought it would be too thin, turned out best. I did go down a needle size to a US7 to get gauge. The colorway is Spina de Pesci from Yarnissima. I love that bright blue!

This is all of the progress made yesterday. I could have made half the damn thing in the time it took to do all of that swatching. But I'll work on it more today. It's very easy knitting. I put the Girasole away for a little bit in order to get this done in time for Florida next month. The Girasole is being made as part of a KAL which isn't over until October 1, and the baby that it is going to isn't due until January, so I think I have plenty of time.



If you haven't already received your June Woolgirl Sock Club Kit, you might want to go away. It's a doosie. So cute.

A bag of goodies plus 2 patterns, one for socks and one for a shawl.

It's difficult to name everything that was included besides the patterns and yarn, a pink bone-shaped calculator, pattern tamers, stitch markers, stickers, tape measure, and note cards. BTW, the name of the kit is "It's Raining Cats and Dogs". So cute! I think I said that already, but it is.

The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy, one of my faves.
Off to play tennis, then back home to watch tennis and knit. Andy plays later.
