Starlight has become my weekend-only project, as it isn't portable and I get pretty much no chance to knit at home during the week. But I'm still working on it! The body pieces have about 2" more to go before I join the sleeves.
In the meantime, there are hats. Just knitting during my commute and for part of my lunch hour, I can complete a hat in two to five days (depending on gauge and amount of cabling).
Recently completed: Pemaquid hat
In progress: A convertible hat (that wants to be called Nathalie), which can be worn as a hat or as a beret. In black and white variegated Muench Naturwolle, on a #10. I can't find this color any more, and I can barely even find the yarn, but it's a thick-and-thin single ply, so I'm thinking Manos will be an excellent substitute if I want to make more of these.
In the wings:
Three recipe cloches.
1. Super-girly cable-and-lace stitch pattern ("Tilting Ladders" for all you Barbara Walker fans) in green Laines du Nord Cashsilk (color 08). I don't know what's up with the recommended needle size being 8 or 9 for this yarn. It's pretty clearly a DK-weight, and I'm going to swatch on sizes #4 and #5 to figure out which is best. The brim will be 1x1 rib, and I'll probably finish this one with a fancy ribbon for extra girliness.
2. Extra-chunky, cloche version of the Wavelet. In dark grey Misti Alpaca Chunky, on a #11. Brim in 2x2 rib. Finished with a ribbed button band, just like the Moss Cloche.
3. Twisted-stitch pattern (BW's "Wickerwork") in Rowan's Scottish Tweed DK held together with a strand of Kidsilk Haze, on a #7. Brim in 2x2 rib, ribbed button band.
