As promised, here's a bit of knitting to show you all.
I swatched for Franklin (my brother's sweater) and really loved working with the yarn. The silk and cashmere in the Jo Sharp Silk Road DK Tweed (oh man, what a long name!) definitely makes this yarn soft and luxurious, but the tweediness and slightly bumpy texture, along with the little bits of VM that keep falling on me, gives it a sort of rustic feel as well. It's like the best of both worlds! It's also very light, but very warm.
I was supposed to measure gauge with the ribbing stretched. So I stretched it until I got gauge, no more, no less. I was happy with that, so I started on the back of the sweater.
That's about what I've got so far (and by "about", I mean it is). 9" of 2x2 rib, and I'm not bored yet!
Last night I also worked on Delain a bit because I wanted to get him all put back together. 13 and 1/2 inches of the front, only 4 1/2" to go before I can split for the neckline and begin the armscyes (is that the proper plural of that word?).
Tomorrow: Tour de Fleece! I finished my skein and it is beautiful if I do say so myself (feel free to disagree tomorrow).
