The question of what to do with the Suri Merino has been answered by the Knitty surprise. A lacy cardigan would be completely wearable in alpaca, even in a warm climate. I'm not in any hurry to cast on, but it eases my mind to have a plan. As for the High Neck Cable, I might knit a tweedy version; I might not. It wouldn't be the first time I've purchased a pattern and not knit it.

But look at that sidebar -- only three WIPs. Looks a little thin to me. If I finish the baby blanket this weekend, it will be positively paltry. I got the new Knitting Around DVD from Schoolhouse Press in the mail yesterday, though, so maybe it's time for a new Zimmermann project. With colorwork, because I can't get enough of it right now.

new project?

Hear that, Whitney? I'll be yoke-ing along with you. Anyone else in?

I just need to put down the glove for half a minute and pick out some colors. After this row.

That's a great idea for the alpaca!

I love seeing EZ projects. Simple and cozy-- perfect for winter knitting :)

I'm in! I plan on doing a seamless yoke for my 7 year old daughter. :) Can't wait to see how it comes along.

My plan to take over the world via yoked sweaters is succeeding! Yay, yokes! I can't wait to see how yours turns out.

Also, I think the Suri Merino will work great for that sweater. And goodness, I sort of wish I could be down to 3 WIPs...I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed!
