I’m getting along pretty well with my new Tea Leaves sweater!  The body is getting longer and there’s not too much more to do before the body will be finished.  I’m more than halfway there (from the underarm).

There’s something very soothing about stockinette stitch in a great yarn.  I’m using Madelintosh Tosh Vintage in Grenadine, which is one of their color ways that look like one thing from a distance (in this case, plum), but when you get closer you realize that really, there are about twenty different colors blending together in the skein.  I think Madelinetosh dyes this type of thing really, really well, but of course I also like their single color tone on tone skeins.  Unfortunately, Grenadine has been discontinued, but I think it’s similar to Alizarin.  At least in the skein in looks similar, I’ve never knit with Alizarin before.

Yesterday and today have gotten hot again, but it’s going to cool off tomorrow, into next week.  I’m guessing that this is our last little hot spike (over 95 degrees) for the year, and the temps will start slowly falling.  By the time it’s cool enough to wear this, I should have it all finished!

Have a great weekend!
