I am happy to report progress on some of the yarn I took out of the Slip Stitch box. There was some gorgeous Tivoli Santos (100% cotton) in 4 different colors that coordinated beautifully.

It's the second book from the man who wrote Eyre Affair. So the question is, do I need to finish the book I'm reading right now before I start this one? It's a bit like getting new yarn to play with when you're deep in the throes of a big project...
