Well, I've been busy

I finished Sammy's sweater just in time, it seems, for Sammy arrived the next day, up in Connecticut. He's my friends' first grandson and I was glad to get this pattern quick so I could make the sweater up and some booties to go along with it--the sweater went up with Grandma, but I had to stick the booties in the mail! (Even the picture is hurried:)

Anyway, I'm now working on another one for Sammy, one that he can wear in 6 months or so when he needs a sweater. It's in Knitpicks Merino Style, from a Debbie Bliss book, and is in the many colors that I love. Except I'm not sure about some of these. I'll take a picture tomorrow and post it, I may pull out the coral color. I'm just not sure.

Other than that, I've been setting up an interim chatroom for the Summer of Lace Group--haven't gotten too many replies on that so maybe it won't be a go after all. But I've been spending many hours on the web and not so many on the needles. I have put away the Black Water Abbey yarn for the summer (you see it pictured below) and I'm also working on my Fiddlesticks project, Flirty Ruffles, and a new stole/shawl that I found on sale at Patternworks in purple handpainted silk that is yummy. And I want to start socks, but not until later in the summer so I'll have some chance of wearing them, maybe by November? So it's Flirty and then Silky, while working on Sammy's cardi, and then socks. Shouldn't have to buy any more yarn for awhile. Except maybe a replacement for that coral...
