Vancouver test knit

All done & Sam's got her pattern up on Ravelry.

Because BMFA's BFL Sport is out of stock while they wait for the mill to deliver more, I had to substitute my yarn. I was trying to knit from my stash which didn't quite work, so I ended up buying more yarn from a lys. Due to test knit time constraints, I didn't want to order online & be late in finishing.

Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh DK (formerly worsted) in
Nikko Blue (main color) - 2.2 skeins
Chamomile (contrast color one) - 1.6 skeins
Magenta (contrast color two) - 1.6 skeins
needle size - 9 & 10.5 KP Harmony circs to get gauge

Monkey2 loves the Nikko Blue so much that she's got dibs on her new "blankie." :D

I also finished another test knit, but its not shareable 'til I get the go ahead from the designer. So in the meantime, I have made progress on my Cascadia sock from the Jan 2010 Rockin' Sock Club kit. I'm doing the medium size on size 1 (2.25 mm) KP circs & it seems to fit well so far,

Love the color and going toe up keeps me on my toes (sorry, couldn't resist!) with my knitting.

Vancouver looks great! I love the colors you put together for it and your model is adorable :-)

The cascadia's are coming along nicely too. Mine are resting right now. I can't decide if I should rip back to fix foot length issue or frog completely and change size. I'd love to hear how much give the leg has when you get that far.
