I'm moving right along on Damson. I know it doesn't look like much right now (I'm switching to a longer needle later today), but I'm almost finished with the garter stitch section and I'm past the halfway point of it (at least by rows).

I realized that I have about 20 yards less than the pattern calls for. I'm hoping that I'll still be OK because most designers give you a little wiggle room on yardage. If it looks like I'm running out, I can probably find something in a solid that will work with my yarn (from the Babette leftovers - forgot about that one didn't you? Me too.) I'll do the edging in the solid if I need to. If you look at the finished Damson, you can see the little loop edge - that's what will be in the solid if I run out of yarn.

Damson's looking lovely - I just got mine out of 440 yards, so the yardage is pretty tight on this one - but go on - live dangerously (especially as you have a good plan B up your sleeve!)

If you check the rainey sisters blog (or on Ravelry), one of them made a variation of Damson with openwork triangles as part of the lace edge--that would also buy you some yardage.
