There's a new snippet from Book IV of Paladin's Legacy up at the Paksworld blog. Also a couple of pictures of the current knitting projects--but I'm putting up a different image of Project #2 here, to show how the variegated yarn looks over the length of the piece. Project #2 is a 6 inch wide scarf, done with Berocco Comfort yarn (Sanibel Island) on size 8 (American) KnitPicks acrylic needle tips and a short cable:
I am loving this yarn--it has an incredibly soft, cuddly hand. Project #1 is in the same yarn but a different color blend (you can see it on the Paksworld blog.) I'm finding the acrylic needles good for travel because they're a bit grippier and thus the yarn doesn't slide off too easily when traveling. Otherwise I prefer the wooden needle tips because they aren't so grippy and particularly on the wide projects like #1 (40 inches wide) it helps to have the stitches move easily along the needles.
