We're traveled like gypsies Only with worse luck and far less gold

I am leaving Sunday for a week in NJ - another business trip. Yesterday my drive back from Hartford took 3 1/2 hours and my check engine light is on again. Oh well.

I did the swatch for Melissa's test pattern last night - her recommended needle size is 5 but I got gauge with a 3 and I am spot on perfect row and stitch! See:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

18 stitches and 31 rows = 4"

So now I have cast on and am knitting the test pattern - I will post pictures as I progress, they will just be slightly obscure, since the pattern won't be available from Sundara till the end of September.

Doesn't the yarn remind you of these: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I showed the yarn to a few people who read my blog and they thought that the picture doesn't do justice to the color.
