As promised, here is a progress pic of my latest knitting project that I started about a week ago.
The pattern is "Elphaba" by Mary Annarella (marymealittle on Ravelry) and the yarn is RYC Silk Wool DK in "Sorrell", a sort of olivish-brownish-goldish color that doesn't photograph really accurately.
I'm using a DK weight yarn instead of fingering weight, so I'm knitting the 29" size to yield about 33". I just didn't have the strength for a fingering weight sweater right now, but I really wanted to make this. It will be good airplane and train knitting for my trip to Germany next week. Our offices are about 2 hours from Frankfurt on the train so there will be planes, trains and automobiles involved!
