Retreat ~ Part II ~ The Projects

I started 3 new projects while we were in Roche Harbor ~ the 1st and most exciting was I got to test knit Kelli's soon-to-be-released, very first ever pattern ~ her 'Kelli Cap'....here she is modeling it

With the black alpaca yarn that I got at Krystal Acres on the first day of our trip, I cast-on 'Weldon's Vintage Scarf' ~ a pattern that I picked up at Fiber Gallery, one of our many lys'.  It was written by Jessica Rose, who we took a class from a few years ago ~ she's awesome and full of stories and tons of knowledge.


The third thing I cast-on for is Kieran Foley's 'Iceland'.  I'm using Ecobutterfly Organics 'Pakucho Lace' in Vanilla Cream, a Peruvian yarn that I picked up at Churchmouse Yarn and Tea a few years ago and have been waiting for just the right project to use it on ~ I think the wait was worth it. I was lucky enough to find some amazing glass beads made in the Czech Republic when we visited Dream Beads in Friday Harbor last weekend.  I'm about 20% done & I'm having a hard hard hard time putting this project down!


I don't know what I was thinking, starting this many new projects with the holidays looming large and unfinished Christmas gifts taunting me in every corner.......
