On the knitting front my new design is coming out much better than I hoped. It has a lot of body and swish. I am really loving the Dream in Color Marino Cashmere blend. I also got 8 more inches knit today. This might just be the pattern that will be given at the March Old Pueblo Knitters luncheon and fashion show. I will include a link when the web site is updated. My plan is to add the second skein of yarn tomorrow. Don't worry this pattern will be suitable for a beginning knitting project.
