Why I have the best husband ever.

One down-side to knitting multiple projects at once is that sometimes, even though you've been knitting and making progress, there's very little in the way of interesting pictures. I finished both hoodie sleeves and they're blocking along with the front ("only" the hood and finishing to go!), I got over my splicing fear and have knit a few more rows on the leaf lace shawl... but that doesn't really make for anything visually exciting.

This, however...



This is my birthday present. Now, my birthday isn't until Sunday, but since Mr. Stash is going to be out of town until next Monday, we celebrated this weekend. That's *two* hanks of Cherry Tree Hill Cascade Silk, fingering weight, Java colorway. It's going to become Seraphim, probably after Leaf Lace is done. Because the Misti Alpaca is wonderful and light and airy and all that, but the Pure Silk is definitely giving me a taste for silk's smooth feel.

So three cheers for Mr. Stash!

OMG, that is GORGEOUS.

100% silk yarn is the shiznit. I am getting totally spoiled by it.

Funny thing is, I have the Java colorway in the CTH Super Sock, and it looks different than the silk. Funny how different fibers take colors differently...

Can't wait to see it knit up!

You lucky ducky!

I'm going to show this to my hub. Maybe he'll start getting me yarn for my birthday instead of telling me that I have too much yarn!
