Although I did in fact get some knitting done yesterday, the day was mostly devoted to holiday-appropriate activities such as eating and drinking to excess, swimming, hanging out by the pool with the relatives, breaking up fights amongst the overtired children, and, oh yes, attending the world-famous Cotuit 4th of July Parade. Above is one of the fine parade floats which demonstrates why we have indeed earned that world-famous status.
On the needles is my own Lutea, in the slightly too-pink yarn shown in the photo--Misti Cotton, a cotton-silk blend. It's very soft and working up nicely, and what the heck, every girl needs at least one garment in a super-sweet cotton-candy pink, right? (It's pinker than it appears in the photo.) But hopefully that will be a quick knit, so the question is: now what? I'm dying to do something with all of these yarns: from left to right, Debbie Bliss Pure Silk (finer than I expected, but I might try using it doubled); Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK, a merino/microfiber/cashmere blend; Plymouth Yarns Shire Silk; Louet Euroflax (100% linen, machine washable and dryable); and the Misti Cotton. But right now that Shire Silk is calling me; I think it may be perfect for a long-sleeved pullover incorporating the Four Sisters stitch pattern--see it swatched here.
(Still writing up that Dayflower Lace pattern!)
