Pattern: Mad Color Weave by Woolgathering
Yarn: Filatura di Crosa Zarina, two skeins
Needles: #1 (2.5mm) KnitPicks circulars (Magic Loop)
Modifications: Did 10 repeats on the leg instead of 6. Added a great touch of color at the toe when I ran out of yarn about 5 rounds from the end.

This week is pretty hectic. Lots to do - packing, choosing what knitting to take and gathering all the boys stuff to send them off to my parents. We leave on Friday first for Baltimore to spend the night and also the day on Saturday, then we are off early Sunday morning for the Outer Banks! Yay!
