WiP It Wednesday

Aside from the Copenhagen experiment, these are the only things I have on the needles:
Rose's Mitts wip
If you're a Dr. Who fan, you may recognize these as Rose's Wrist Warmers from the "Doomsday" finale of Season 2 (tear.jerker). Are they not fabulous?

What makes them even more fabulous is the yarn - Lizard Toes Isobel. turtlegirl76, in all her awesomeness, sent me half a skein to see if my über-sensitive skin could handle the cashmere.

Oh. My. Knittinggoddess. This yarn is heaven. Sheer, unadulterated, roll-around-nekkid-in-it heaven. And so far, not an itch in sight! You know what this means, don't you?

This means I can buy yarn with cashmere!

Wait.

This means I can buy yarn with cashmere.

Oh, dear...

Getting itchy from cashmere would be a bad thing, except for one's wallet. Still, I think it's a good thing that you can wear cashmere!

That is beautiful - love the cable! And lucky you that cashmere works for you...I just finished a scarf with a cashmere/silk blend that was really nice. Think of all the fun you will have trying out new cashmere yarns!

Beautiful color and stitch definition! I have a silk/cashmere fingering weight skein of yarn from Neighborhood Fiber Company, and it is amazing to touch.
