It looks better in person

This is 'ice queen', from Knitty. Instead of KSH as suggested in the pattern, I'm using Cashmere/Silk from Zen Yarn Garden . This yarn was the first yarn from the Sumptuous Sock Club. Anyway...there are also very pretty little beads here and there on this, and it is a fast knit (I cast on when, two days ago?). And fun to do. This yarn is really incredible to work with.

Today my theme is finishing. I need to put the handles on the Fan Bag (yes, they arrived yesterday, thanks Jimmy Beans), finish Tim's holiday surprise, and, um, sew the sleeves on a sweater I finished about a year ago. Yep. You read that right. I'm a slacker. It's the 'Cabernet Something" from IK. It has been sitting on my dresser for mumbmumblemumble and I need to finish it if for no other reason than to put it away and have it not live on the dresser anymore.

Plus I think I will cast on for the Diamond Aran (see list below) Because you can't have too many projects in the works, can you?.

Now I'm jealous! In a nice way Kimmy. Are you putting beads in this? I'd love to make one, but I may omit the beads.

Wow I can't believe you've already knit this! Lace and beads? The Mystery stole must of really changed you... :)
