Windward is almost done. A day of football means lots of knitting. I thought about going outside for pictures and then thought better of it. It's very windy in Ancaster. The least amount of time spent outside the better.

I'm loving the size. This Windward is knit in sport weight (Sportmate from Lorna's Laces) which is making it bigger than the first two that I knit in sock weight.

Speaking of sock yarn...

New sock yarn arrived today. Alegria Watercolors from Manos.
Sock yarn from Manos!  Alegria is an easy-care blend of ultra-soft superwash merino with durable polyamide.  Its “hand” is remarkably soft and resilient.

Two colours of the original Alegria arrived today as well. These are brighter with a lot more colour variation.
The colours are awesome and the yarn is super soft. It was hard but I didn't bring any home with me. I have to finish Windward and there is a ball of a brand new Rowan yarn in my bag. The yarn should be in the store later this week and I need to get a sample knit.

It's knitting time :)
