I have been working on Nora Gaughn's Eastlake sweater using Bristol's Lyndon Hill 85% Pima Cotton and 15% silk. The yarn is a bit thin for the pattern so its very open and light, but I think I like it that way. It will make a great summer sweater. Someone on Ravelry knit it with short sleeves and it looked great... so I may do that. OR... I may knit it with long sleeves instead of the 3/4 length and wear it with a shirt underneath. The lacey effect of the leaves may be a bit revealing! It's gone very quickly and I'm already on the 32nd row!

Gee... here it is the 2nd day of summer and it's still cool and grey! Where's the sunshine? My hubby and I are playing dueling laptops while our PWD pup Kizi is sacked out on the settee. Lazy day! I need to turn the computer off and take up my needles again and knit!
