Knits in Rehearsal:

Color Affection by Veera Valimaki

I'm using Knitting Notions Classic Merino Bamboo in the colors Atlantic, Saffron and Ironstone.
Of course, this picture doesn't really capture the true colors of the yarn.

Knitting News and Notes:
Participated in a Virtual Knit Night (VKN) with some of my favorite podcasters:
Danie from the The Prairie Girls Knit and Spin
(Don't worry, Susie was invited but she couldn't make it!)
Boston Jen from the Down Cellar Studio Podcast
Sarah and Kristi from In a sKnit Video Podcast
Emily from Knitting Butterflies
So much fun! Google Hangouts are super easy to do, give it a try and have a VKN of your own!
We are chugging right along on the PalKal (#palkal2014). Official dates are July 1-October 1
Enter as many times as you like: each project is one entry
Either the pattern designer or yarn dyer must be a podcaster
Have fun! Details are in the Actually Knitting Podcast Group on Ravelry
Thanks to Estella, OneMoreRowPlease on Ravelry, for her generous donation of 2 patterns as prizes for the PalKal.
