Knitting along on a sleeve with no name...

Still here, despite the fact that my Fiber Space only looks slightly better today than it did yesterday. I've been knitting on a new mindless stockinette sweater for myself - after all, you can't knit Peacock Feathers and watch TV. These are the sleeves to a Jaeger pattern (from JB34, if you're interested) they call Ronnie. For reasons involving a crazy neighbor we used to have who had a huge crush on Mickael, I won't be calling my sweater "Ronnie." So, I obviously need a name for my sweater because while "Sleeve with no name" works, you just can't sing about a "Sweater with no name." (You're all quite welcome to have that song in your head for the rest of the day - BWAH HA HA) I realized that the dark red and gold (colors are slightly lighter in the picture than they are in real life, but its pretty close) are Gryffindor colors (yep, another Harry Potter freak, that's me) and I thought about naming it Gryffindor Mourning (I won't say who Gryffindor is mourning for those that haven't read the book yet - Daddy, ahem - but I'm sure most everyone knows that someone dies in Book 6), but if anyone has a better idea for a name for this sweater, please feel free to let me know.

The knitting details for those that care: I'm using KnitPicks Merino Style yarn in Hollyberry, Honey, and Dusk on size 5's to get 5.5 stitches an inch. I'm loving the yarn, its very easy to knit and feels great. I think this sweater will be wonderful to wear. By the way, if you haven't heard yet, KnitPicks has introduced three new lace yarns to their lineup: a heathered solid, a multicolored, and a white for dyeing - all merino. I haven't ordered any of them yet and don't know how they feel, but there's quite a buzz about them on the Summer of Lace list right now.
