I finished Hitchhiker #2 (worked from a cone of 50/50 wool silk, which seemed to have a lot of knots toward the end).
It bloomed beautifully after washing. I didn't pin it because it's not lace, and it's plenty big already.
So versatile that I cast on Hitchhiker #3 (these are gifts, and I need a couple more by Christmas). This yarn is Rowan Kidsilk Haze Glamour, from my goodie bag on the Bahamas cruise (damn, I love free yarn-my No Stash Enlargement Policy does not extend to turning down freebies). It's amazing stuff, silk and mohair with teeny tiny little sequins throughout.
Speaking of freebie yarn on cruises, did you know that the March cruise will be co-sponsored by Malabrigo? And that the class supplies and freebies will all be Malabrigo???? I think you want to come on this cruise. I really really do.
Speaking of which- take a peek at this... (oops, there was an error in the flyer- I'll repost after the correction has been made) Cool, no???
