The Lizard Ridge Afghan and more Quince and Co.

It's Christmas time, when children are sleeping with "visions of Sugarplums dancing through their heads";  me, I'm  dreaming of  new knitting projects.   There's the Meris cardigan by Elizabeth Doherty and the yarn has just arrived from Quince and Co:


Here's a better picture than the one I posted last time:


This yarn is incredible!  So very soft and the color is beautiful.  I always worry about buying yarn that I have not had a chance to see first hand, but I had heard many good things about Quince and, from what I can see, it' all true!  Also, the yarn is manufactured in New England and that's always a good thing to be able to support American companies. This is their fingering weight yarn called Finch and the composition is 100% wool.

I have also had dreams of knitting the fabulous Lizard Ridge afghan by Laura Aylor  and my Noro Kureyon that I bought for this project  has been languishing in a stash bin waiting to be set free.  I figure this is as good a time as any to get started and use up some of my growing stash, because you know in January I will be swearing to do this anyway!



Met up with some friends for coffee and knitting and Mary, known as KnitAdmin on Ravelry, showed us these beautiful Lithuanian Wristers:



Have a good day and stay dry!
