Next up: Adelaide

Now on the needles: Adelaide, which will be a shawl-collared jacket in muted shades of pink and green. After the ultrafine mohair of Laverne, the chunky Araucania wool is a big switch. I experimented with a swatch of slipped-stitch color work for the body of the sweater, but the verdict from The Ladies this morning was that I should stick with plain stockinette and save the color changes for the garter stitch border. (Thanks, Ladies! Good advice, as always.) I'm just about ready to start working the short rows for the collar and the buttonholes nowl; first I have to double-check to see which side the buttons are supposed to go on--I can never remember that.

Special thanks to Jene for the sardine bowl...
