Yesterday was a very exciting day at my house.  It was YARN DELIVERY DAY.  You know how that goes, right?  I has been waiting with great anticipation for the delivery of my "dream yarn"....6 skeins of Madelinetosh sock yarn in Composition Book Grey.  It is quite a few shades off of how it looked in the photos (photos were a very pure gray, and these skeins tend quite a bit toward purple), but I still love it and can't wait to make it into a sweater!

Here's what I'm making:

It'll be my third Leap of Faith.  During May and June, we're having a Sweater Knit-along in the Trappings and Trinkets Ravelry group.  Have you joined yet?  The more, the merrier, so please come and play with us!  As a bonus, signing up in the group thread will get you a coupon code worth 50% off of your chosen sweater pattern!

I might be finishing this sweater a little differently than my first.  I love the zippered hoodie, but I'm not sure I need two sweaters that are identical except for the color.  So for my gray one, I might either leave it as an open cardigan, or do a clasp at bust level....not quite sure right now.  I'm sure I'll be able to decide one it's finished.

You don't need a Leap of Faith sweater, you say?  Well, I have 10 sweater patterns to choose from, and they're all eligible to be part of this knit-along.  So take a look at my designer's page and see if any of them strike your fancy.  If you want a light-weight one that would be good for warmer weather, may I suggest a few?

Guacamole is great for layering on those cool summer nights.....

 Maybe your little girl would love a Waltz of the Flowers sweater to wear over her leotard, or over her sundresses?

Or maybe you'd like a loose, casual pullover that looks great over a summer tank top?  Check out Tiny Dancer (or Tiny Dancer, jr., a modified version of the adult sweater made to fit your 6-14-year-old.

Come and join us!  You can ask questions, see other people's projects, and let them cheer you on and motivate you to get your project finished!
