Summer-along, week 4

There was acutally knitting on Sally's Favorite Summer Sweater last week at Thursday's knitting-at-work group. T & I knit for a half hour or so. She is making good progress on her hot pink sweater, about 2 inches so far. J has done about 3 inches of the open work part. Since I finished my cast on 2 weeks ago, I'm out ahead of the other two on this. I finished the back in the car last night, with the shortrows around the neck. I've been fussing about the size.. to narrow? too long? Who can tell. Progress photo:


At the same session H. learned to purl and is considering Tempting as her first non-scarf project. Anyone got any advice on yarn for Tempting?

I'm planning to make Tempting, too, at some point. I think a silk-wool blend would be nice, depending on the color and season she wants to wear it. I don't think cotton would be springy enough for the rib pattern, although I love cotton. (Muench Samoa is fast replacing Rowan as my favorite cotton!) I am madly in love with White Lies' silk-wool blend used for Nicole -- I want to use it for everything. Don't know if it's available separately or if you have to buy a kit.
