I have been working slowly on Paradise Lost, by Plum Street Samplers in between knitting my mom's birthday and Christmas present. A sweater from the book by Lily Chin, Power Cables. Mom picked out the yarn while visiting me this summer at Black Mountain Yarn Shop. She picked a Malabrigo, 50% silk/50% wool variegated purple that is just exquisite and soft to the touch. I was just visiting Nicole's Needlework blog and her work is just beautiful. Good evening everyone.
