Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Bits and bobs on the needles...

Got my wunnerful stash enhancement from Jamieson & Smith in the Shetlands...3 sweaters' worth of 2-ply jumper-weight Shetland wool. Had to immediately cast one on...Vaila Vest

from Ann Feitelson's The Art of Fair Isle Knitting. Great stuff...loving these colors...slogging through the corrugated ribbing...will go faster once I get to the actual pattern.

And yes, folks, there ARE socks on the needle...a couple pairs, actually...but most active are the Falling Leaves from in Fleece Artist Merino Sock, colorway Glacier.

Haiti from Dale of Norway Dalegarn 122 is coming along nicely as's been my commuter project and is just a few rows away from starting the underarm shaping...

Ooh ooh ooh! I have been wanting to make Falling leaves! Yours look fantastic! Lovely color choice. And that fair isle is something! Go Nancy, go Nancy!

Love the colors on the vest, and the sock looks great too!
