DTT & Intoxicating

I am still working on the Diamond Triangle Tank (DTT). No word on the missing skein and the knitting attached to it, so I think it is officially MIA at this point. Yarn Harlot's lost knitting writes to her but perhaps that is what I get for abandoning my knitting far from a hot spot. The DTT is a great pattern for conference calls or other distracted knitting since it is garter stitch.
I also cast on a few times for Intoxicating from No Sheep For You. I don't think I have ever been so indecisive about color choice before. I got some great yarn from Webs, Valley Yarns Longmeadow in Lettuce, Melon and Dark Purple.

The Lettuce is just yellow enough that it looked a bit psychedelic paired with the purple or a darker orange (Classic Elite Pumpkin I think) that I also paired it with.

So, I made the huge sacrifice of going to LYS, and shopping for more yarn. I ended up with some Cascade Sierra in Coral and a quattro that's got coral and pinks in it.

And while it still seems a bit 60's to me, it looks like more me now.
