Holy Crap, I am going to the Black Sheep Gathering tomorrow for the first time ever and I am totally excited. I can't wait. I had so much fun at OFFF last year and I hear this one is bigger and better. If you see me there say howdy.
In other news I did just finish a very beautiful sweater vest. I used the pattern in Men's Knits by Erica Knight. It is called Simple Vest and I used Katmandu Aran Tweed to knit with. Color choices were Magenta for the rib and dark gray for the rest. I kind of faded the magenta up into the gray after I finished the rib. It was a fun knit. Not just hours of stockinette. It held my interest all the way thru.
I am also 5 squares into the Great American Aran Afghan and I am addicted. Trying to do one square a month so I should be done towards the end of next year.
