We just got in a new shipment of Mirasol's Tupa, a 50/50 merino wool and silk blend. The yarn has a gorgeous sheen and comes in the most vibrant colors. Right now we are looking through all our dk weight patterns trying to decide what to start. We don't need to start a new project but this yarn is too hard to resist.

Here is my first finished Summer project- Pagoda from Louisa Harding's beautiful book, Chinoiserie. It is knit in Fleuris, a bamboo/wool blend that is super soft. This was a quick and fairly simple sweater to knit but beware- there is an errata sheet for the pattern. You can find it here.
I think this is a great, wear-over-everything summer sweater that looks equally cute over a summer dress as it does with skinny pants. I plan on wearing it a lot!
