Spring Break

First objective of spring break – unwind. And for me, there is no better way than to knit.

1) Finished the front of my Whispering Rose vest – http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Theflock/whispering-rose

Now it is blocking, and then the front and back need to be stitched together, and the trim knitted on.

Using String Theory hand dyed yarn in a Light Teal color that makes me very happy.

2) Began a new project – using the pattern Vodka Lemonade. Ravelled here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Theflock/vodka-lemonade

The yarn is buttery and soft – I am so looking forward to completing this sweater. The yarn is made by String Theory, and is their hand dyed merino DK

The pattern is easy to memorize, and has long stretches of plain knit or purl – making it a good travel sweater. Will come in handy at all the baseball games slated for this week.

Although at this point, the weather is not cooperating for baseball. It was sleeting just a bit ago, right after I dropped middle son off for his first tournament game of the current series. The last tournament only made 2 of the 3 days due to rain. And cold. And rain. Where is spring?
