I've been working on Marilyn and Marta exclusively. Here's the progress thus far: Marilyn - I've finished the back and will be casting on for the front. This has been a fun and quick knit thus far. I'm kicking myself that I didn't knit it in the round though. I can feel a tinge of second sleeve syndrome for the front, but I will overcome it. Marta - I've completed 9 of the 14 "points" needed for the lacey hem treatment. I'll be knitting this garment in the round to be sure; at least up to the armhole shaping. While I'm very excited about these two projects, I'm starting to feel a bit antsy to start something new, especially now that Spring has sprung in Sacramento. I want to knit the White Lies Shapely Tank/Tee, but I don't think I have anything in the stash that would work for this pattern. Unbelievable, you must say - well, most of my stash is wool, not much cotton here (psst, Secret Knitting Pal - you asked for ideas for future projects...). There's a Shapely Tank Knit-a-long over at Rose-Kim's. Well, I'll end with a photo of Ally, squinting in the sun, newly returned from the groomer, hence the sparkly pompom on top.
