Eunny released her larger size Vest pattern yesterday, so I bought it. It's such a lovely vest. It will be a good chance for me to learn colorwork and steeking.

I have even decided on my yarn and colors, KnitPicks Merino Style in Cornflower and Asparagus. (The Asparagus isn't available until April 7th.) But I have a ton of projects to complete before I am allowing myself to make this vest. I want to wrap up all my currents, and make that Aran Rose sweater I have the yarn for..... no, honest I do!

I have also joined the knitalong for the vest. You can find it here. I look forward to learning from the other members as they go along. Perhaps then I won't have any problems.

I haven't done much knitting in the past couple of days. Mostly just played with that cable design. I even checked for good cable books at the library yesterday, but didn't really find anything that sang out to me. I'll try again when I actually get around to designing the aran. Mostly, I am just happy to have gotten the central motif settled so that when I see other stitch patterns I like I can go ahead and decide if they would go well or not.

That's it from here, except:

Hey sucky knitting girls... I am thinking about making lip balm before Monday, what flavor would you most like to have?
peppermint, spearmint, doublemint, hibiscus, sweet orange, or orange cinnamon?

I can't find your e-mail address - the meeting is the 20th, not this Monday (the 13th) -- We're meeting the THIRD Monday of the month....

and Hibiscus. :D

Doh! you are so right. I even have it on my calendar. Dunno why I shuffled it up like that.

Though all of the options sound good to me. I'll take whatever, come to think of it.
