New Yarn, New Project

WooHoo! My LYS was listed as one of the sellers for the yarn recommended in the Drops pattern 94-27. When I got there, they owner told me they no longer carry that brand. She was able to suggest 3 substitutions and I wound up with this:

It is a blend of 45% cotton, 45% acrylic and 10% viscose. I love the neutral color and sheen. And it was on sale for 50% off!!!!!

You can better see the little color flecks here:

I started the heel flap on my second sock this morning and plan (hope) to be finished by Sunday ~ if I can fit in some knitting even though I will be working the next 3 nights. Then I will be ready to swatch!!!!!

Okay, can you tell I am really excited about this one?!

Hi! Found my way here from your post about starting your first sweater, over at Knitter's Review Forum.

I love the yarn you chose, it's so pretty and I bet it will make a pretty sweater! Good luck with it!
