Memorial Day Weekend is Over

Unfortunately we were all down with a stomach flu. Mitch remained relatively frisky so he was pretty bored with the parents' inactivity. Of course as the long weekend comes to the end, we are feeling better...
Before this thing hit me full force, I managed to ply up the superwash. It's a little more green -- mint green -- in reality. It's very soft and silky, and I love it. I have two hanks of about 100 meters, and some more, so I am planning to knit a pair of socks.

My plying technique is still uneven. Most of the superwash was plied a bit loosely than I would have wanted it to be. So the third, smaller hank, I tried to ply much tighter.

Looks just about right.

Here's the pattern I am planning to knit from the Japanese pattern book I bought.

Isn't it cute? I am thinking of using the Bubble Gum Cotsweld I spun. I'm going to change it a bit and omit the sleeves at the arrow in the picture -- it'll be a cute drop-shoulder vest. I hope I have enough yarn for this. Some serious swatching and calculations to do...
My Bunny Socks is slowly progressing. And oh darn, back to work...
