Love! Love! Love!

I just checked out Norah Gaughan's Knitting Nature from the library. I am in love. I know that this book made the blog rounds some time ago, but at the time, I didn't truly realize just how wonderful the patterns in it are. Right now, I am obsessing over two, the Roundabout Leaf Tank (like everybody else) and the Shell Tank. Both will be great for Brazil.

For the Shell Tank, I already have appropriate stash yarn, Elann Sonata in Tapestry Blue

For the Roundabout Leaf Tank, I had to order some yarn, since there wasn't any aran weight summer yarn in my stash. Once again, I went with Elann (I'm so close to the $50 free yarn!) for Katia Jet, which I hope will work well for this. I know, cotton's not slinky like the Berroco Denim Silk the pattern calls for, but I'm hoping the chainette construction will help with this. My husband chose the color Aqua, and I think he made a pretty good choice:

There will, of course, be no knitting on these projects until I get to Brazil. We leave on the 30th of July! Nothing but packing and panic for the next two weeks.
