That’s right, I have Fearless Fiber! Came in the mail today, and is now waiting for the right moment to become the Bee Stole. Isn’t it pretty?

(Don’t mind the cat butt…that’s as far from the yarn as we could get her for the picture…)

In other news, I have 12 rows until the end of the small feathers section in Irtfa’a. I was planning to finish that tonight, but it’s getting late and I don’t think I’ll make it. But it’s the weekend, so I can work on it all day tomorrow. =)

Oh, and just in case you’ve ever wondered, there is a very good reason not to put a big project down for 9 mos and then expect to come back and pick up right where you left it. I’m not sure if it’s all the lace knitting or what, but my gauge has apparently changed when working with the Cascade EcoWool. This is annoying, as I am attempting to go back and make one stripe for the afghan that I started last March in between each major project, so that something actually gets accomplished on that project. This is a pretty easy goal, as it’s basically just a 7 or 8 foot long scarf in between sweaters. Should be a breeze. But my gauge has changed. I guess I go up a needle size and hope it doesn’t come back once I get into the piece? Humph.
