Actual Knitting Content

I have been knitting.....I know that is hard to believe.  While I don't have as much time as I would like, nor do I get to work on the projects I want to, I do get some things done.  Here are the almost completed sleeves for my Bristow sweater that I started in January. Bristow_sleeves All of the other pieces are done, I just hadn't worked on the sleeves since March.  Once these are complete, I can put it together and have a new sweater to wear.  Interesting how I have a pink background for this.....the sweater is actually green on a grey table.  Close_up_of_cable The close up of the cable makes the sweater look grey.  So, here are the details of the sweater:

Pattern-Bristow from Knitty
Yarn- Debbie Bliss Cashmerino in Moss green

My goal is to complete the sweater by the end of next week.  I have some other projects that I would like to start soon.

On the store front......we just received our first shipment from Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks.  Handdyed_roving This is the bombyx roving (silk) that we just received.  Now I really need to bug Susan (one of my instructors) to teach me to spin.  Just looking at this makes you want to do something, anything with it!  Of course, I received other rovings and yarn, but this one is the prettiest! 

That is all for now.....I plan on taking pictures of some of the completed projects in the store over the weekend as I have done some knitting.
