New Sweater

Started Stilwell yesterday. Really liking it. Out of Berocco Ultra Alpaca in navy blue and cream. Using 4.5mm needles. Tried out 5.5mm needles for the colorwork as suggested by pattern (2 needle sizes up) but i think this is a little too big a jump for me. Used 5mm and much better, i think. This is going to be a fast knit.

Also working on second sock for Alex's 6th birthday which is this Friday (6 days away). Using Vesper sock yarn in the Wildberry colorway. She knows so wont be a surprise. We might have to go shopping for new shoes for her birthday to go with the socks. I am hoping to get anklets for Mia out of the leftovers.
