A lovely new project

This week was kind of crazy, catching up from being gone for 4 days at the conference. It was also kind of discombobulated, don't know why.
It did finish off well, though. Yesterday, I went to the Arboretum Foundation plant sale in seattle. I love different and odd plants and also the ones that bloom black and chocolate. Imagine scabiosa "ace of spades" and "chocolate" sapigloss. Of course they came home with me.

I also got a chance to stop at Acorn Street Yarn shop. No new yarn, but I was able to get the needles for my 'traveling sweater'. Why is is that when you think you have them all, the pattern calls for one you don't have?
Since the weather was a bit crazy yesterday, I came home from the plant sale and started the sweater. I'm loving the yarn (wooboo) and the color (thraven). You can't really see it much, but it kind of has this underlying light green tone. It's going to be beautiful.
The other thing there is one of the 'endpaper mitts'. I'm putting the other away for a while in favor of the sweater. This one turned out great, though.

Today, it's out to the garden. Make hay and all that!

The Endpaper Mitt is lovely! I'm debating whether I need the Addi Lace Clicks, myself. (Will I then have exactly what I need? Probably not...)
