Now that the Monhegan Aran is finished, I have gotten back to "Alcea". The steeks are cut and the neck ribbing and button bands are finished. Both came out nicely. I have started the sleeve and am almost through the first pattern sequence. Two and a half repeats of the pattern should make the sleeve just about the right length. Nice to get back to fairisle. I hope to have it finished before the "Oregon" KAL starts in Feb. I'm already thinking about what to put on the needles next..............so MANY choices!
