Doing quite well on the Cape Collar Jacket - both fronts are now at the beginning of the collar shaping. Had to put it down for a bit - the instructions are one of those "knit the other front reversing all shapings" ones and doing them both at once was a little too challenging for my weekend brain.

Finished my Feather and Fan socks in Araucania Ranco Multy:

Colour is #304. I likey!

Picked up the Mtn Colours Bearfoot socks that I started at Rhinebeck - have 1 done and am starting the ankle (doing them toe up) of the 2nd.

Received my Rowan order yesterday. Diamond Yarns used to distribute Rowan, Regia and others here and now it is coming directly from Westminster Fibres in the US. The good thing about that is that there is 1 less middleperson meaning the prices are better (and closer to the US prices). The bad thing is that I can't run out to the warehouse to re-stock. The better prices win imho

I ordered Calmer - brilliant yarn - cotton that stretches, Kid Silk Haze - lovely yarn, in colours that are unique to Rowan to supplement my stock of Madil Kid Seta (which is the SAME yarn from the same mill), and my personal favourite Summer Tweed - cotton and tussah silk in great colours (see my queue on Ravelry for "Delve" in ST - user name is RobynRedBird).

My Ravelry queue is now on to 2 pages. The chances of my making everything is getting thinner all the time but how can I not dream!

Happy knitting

Those socks are lovely! Is that a SOTM? I may have to rejoin to get that pattern.

I am planning a lace pattern that uses variations on the F and F (Feather and Fan) theme. Stay tuned. Robyn
