So for my mom's birthday (which was in April) and then for Mothers Day (which was in May), I've finally finished the Primrose Path sweater. I knitted it with Blue Sky Alpaca Silk on size 6s. One road bump that I had to overcome was having to knit a third sleeve after realizing that the body and first sleeve were from one dye lot and the second sleeve was from a different dye lot. The difference between the two was pretty obvious. Yikes. Luckily my LYS (Fancy Tiger) had more of the first dye lot. Mom's in Florida so it'll be a while before she'll be able to wear it.
I had two skeins of Mirasol Hacho yarn around that I'd bought a couple years ago. I decided to try some afterthought heel socks at the urging of OperaGeek and they were really simple and fun to make. Two skeins were clearly not enough so I ended up buying two more skeins and now have some left over and will possibly try a cap or something with it.
