First up, a pair of Ysolda's Grown-Up Booties. I cast on the first one back in October, and finished it the same month. Then I didn't cast on for the second one until Sunday. I'm roaring through the lovely garter stitch in my held-double Wool of the Andes, so soon this one will have a mate.
I originally started these for a Christmas gift, and they may still end up being a gift. Not sure yet.
The second item I've been working on this week is something that brings me great joy for two reasons:
1)it's lace, and I am getting more confident with every row I knit; 2) I'm knitting it out of some of my New Mexico yarn from my trip with Sarah last March. I've been coveting this silk yarn from La Lana Wools since I bought it, and in January, I finally broke it free from the drawer. I'm making Liesel with my 200+ yards of double-dyed purple worsted Tussah silk.
I'm going to try to wrap up these two projects before the next phase of Project Spectrum (May), and if I have time, I may cast on for another green project.
