Split V Update

I got my May afghan block done for class on Saturday and got the June block started so I can show the technique to the class. This is a good time of year to work on the blocks... nice and small for this warmer weather.

I've also been working on Herminia, but again, size 2 needles, garter stitch (with short rows) makes for slow progress.

However, I'm progressing nicely with the Adara Split V pullover:

I'm right at the bottom ribbing. Then just the sleeves and the neckband. A nice, straight forward pattern and I love the Adara. It has a lovely drape (so while I couldn't believe that I was to knit it at 18 sts to 4", it was the right gauge after all). I had also bought an other color (lagoon) of it when I bought the hyancinth. I was planning on using it for a crochet top, but I don't like it as well crocheted. So I'll have to find something else for it! Maybe a nice simple cardigan.

I think the A/C might go on today for the first time this year. It's gotten very hot and muggy already this year... and my tolerance isn't very good for the muggy weather.

Keep on Knittin'!
