Yarn-of-the-Month Update

August yarn is tosh merino light in Rosewood.
July yarn was Tosh Merino DK in Hearth.
Neither has been cast on. First I want to finish my May YOTM sweater. I am nearing the end of the body on that. Then there's sleeve island to look forward to...

I am muchly behind on my 12 sweaters for 2011, so I'm trying to concentrate on that. The Hearth TMDK will most likely be a Harvest Moon Cardigan and I'm thinking of striping the Rosewood tml with another color or 2 for a loose-gauge striped summer pullover. I am getting very interested in a couple of methods of top-down set-in sleeve sweater knitting. Sewing in sleeves is not my idea of a good time :)
