LotW: Finished

This is the most exquisite thing I've made to date. I kinda love it. Here's the finished product unblocked: I decided on some shell buttons over plastic. It works.
It's a simple feather and fan pattern but it turned out wonderful.

Yummy Bowl of Yarn

I've got some work to do!

Lake of the Woods: So close!

It's slow at work (finally!). I whipped out my LotW capelet to secretly knit the last few rows. Turns out I can't knit the last 6 rows until I get home because it calls for a smaller needle size. ARGH!

I also need to find pretty buttons to sew on. I'm so picky it will probably take me forever to decide on something I like.

1/2way there?

I just got my second batch of yarn from in the mail today...
...and I totally lucked out! The skeins are from the same lot number as my first two skeins!!
I was so worried that the there would be a big color difference with skeins from a different lot. This would result in me not liking the finished product and never wearing it. I prefer to knit things that I'd get a lot of wear out of.

Lake of the Woods Progress

It's coming along nicely. I'm not sure if I got gauge but it seems to be working fine.
Closer look:
Problem: I have to purchase 2 more skeins to finish. I only need 1/4 of one of those skeins. You know how much each skein of Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb costs?! This is my most pricey project yet. =/ Holy crap.
