Eyre

Eyre 
I've been knitting along on the back of Eyre and it's moving along nicely.  I love this yarn (Dream in Color Smooshy With Cashmere) and the way it feels.  The finished sweater will be soft and light.  The stitch pattern has lace things happening on both the right and wrong side rows, but it's intuitive and very easy to read.  Once you get a feel for it, it's simple to figure out if you've made a mistake.  Overall, despite the fact that it's not stockinette or garter stitch, this a relaxing knit and I can actually watch TV while I work on it.  I was not expecting this back section to be TV friendly when I started this sweater, so that was a nice surprise.

I've got to read the directions and start measuring soon because I'm not sure if I'm supposed to work to a certain measurement before or after blocking.  It would probably be a good idea to double check that before I knit it long enough to be a dress.

Have a great weekend!  It looks like it's going to be a messy one for most of the US, but we're just supposed to get a lot of rain here.  Sounds like knitting weather to me!
