Thank you everyone for your nice words about my last "This Moment" photo. A few people asked what Lily is wrapped in-- it's the Forest Canopy shawl I knit a few years ago. Some day I hope to give it to her, if she wants it. It's special to me because it's the first lace shawl I ever knit.
Square pieces of red are piling up for the matinee jacket. It's such an enjoyable knit. I'm working on sleeves now, and it won't be long before I'm putting the pieces together. Wish me luck!
Cottage Daydreams seemed perfect. I'm not sure if I will keep them for myself or give them away as a gift.

Last night while laying in bed and browsing the latest issue of Vogue Knits, this oversized pullover caught my eye. After studying the pattern I decided I actually have the skills to knit it (we'll see). The yarn is a cotton/soy blend called Soja, which I've never seen or heard of, so I ordered one ball online to make sure it is soft enough for my skin and easy enough for my fingers to knit with. If it passes those two tests, I think I'm going to make it.
