I finished Cascata while in the midst of the busy.
I think it will work nicely over my pale green coat, although the thought of wearing a wool coat, now that we are firmly enjoying hot summer days, makes me a little clammy.
Cascata was a pattern I have been wanting to knit for a long time and I think using the yarns I did worked out well. I used one strand of natural white wool and a strand of JoJoland Harmony that was a long ago gift. The stripes fell into place without fighting with the lace pattern. I am really pleased with it, although I will probably reblock it sometime, now that the spare bed is available again.
I took the knitting along on a couple of the recent excursions with Laure and the group which led to one of those discussions about yarn with someone who knows little about yarn. If you try to tell me that wool only shrinks, I tend to get a little over technical.
Anyway, tomorrow is looking like a very full day. I'm racing a 5K in the morning, our Jim is getting married in the afternoon and we have a family party in the evening. I will be busy enough to keep from missing Laure.
