I have been knitting - I took some time off from the shop - and spent long hours with knitting in my lap. This project is excellent for keeping your mind occupied - not to mention the gorgeous results.Iris by Susan Pandorf
Silk Twist by Handmaiden (have you tried this yet? you really, really should!)
And for when I haven't felt like concentrating, I've started this. My version of the Ombre Alpaca Blanket from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It's done with 30 skeins of timiQuipa Sportweight Alpaca for a total cost of just over $210 - much better than the $450 Blue Sky Alpaca version.
It's super soft and not a bit scratchy. This yarn is a keeper.
