New kits and finishing

We received a shipment from Handmaiden yesterday. This is the yarn for the Maid Marian vest. The name Handmaiden might not be familiar to you but Fleece Artist probably is. Kathryn owns Fleece Artist and her daughter owns Handmaiden.

Some of you have been asking about the Addi Lace knitting needles. They arrived today. These have sharper points making it easier for knitting lace.

I worked on Kilcar in the store today. In this picture one half of the collar is sewn down and one sleeve is sewn in. I got the other half of the collar done after the picture. If I had three wishes, one would be for a finishing fairy!!! The sewing together isn't hard but after all that knitting you just want it to be done.

Love the Lady Godiva colour. Beautiful. Would love to get there with Kristin, but may have to beat her there in the morning.
