Shiny, Pretty Yarn!!!

Just a quick pic of yarn porn so I can get back to my knitting. My lovely, lovely Colinette Giotto arrived a few weeks ago from across the pond. I'm so excited about this yarn it's crazy! It took awhile for me to choose which colourway I liked best, Colinette has so many to choose from! This one's called Florentina and I think it's perfect. I can't wait to start the Waterlily Top, I just need to practice the provisional cast-on for awhile first. The ribbon is so soft and shiny, it looks like velvet. Wish me luck in winding the yarn into balls without creating a huge tangled mess.

I'm bearing down on the end of the baby blanket. Only 3 skeins left now, with 1 reserved exclusively for the border. I tried to work on it for several hours each day last week, and after waiting in the ER for 9 hours with my mother and her broken ankle on Friday, I'm proud to say I accomplished a lot. The end is in sight! In other knitting news, there is another Ball-Band Dishcloth finished and another one about to fly sizzling off the needles.
