Ready to go!

Here is my progress on Juliet:

The yarn is Cascade Venezia which is a blend of 70% merino, 30% silk. I swatched it to gauge on size 9 needles but then found the gauge to be way off once I started knitting, so I frogged it. I am now using size 10.5 needles and so far, so good. I'm 3 rows away from joining the body.

I have also purchased my yarn for Tree Jacket. I got Tahki Savoy which is 52% silk, 48% merino from Webs. It arrived today and it is possibly the softest yarn I've ever felt! The label indicates that it will knit to gauge, but a swatch will tell for sure!

Nice yarn choices. Love your stitch markers! Where did you get them?

I made my stitch markers. I have a number of kitty designs plus some of them have actual photos of my kitties. I'm thinking of selling customized ones where people submit photos. Do you think there's a market for that?

How do you like the Cascade Venezia? I have the worsted version but haven't decided what to do with it yet---seems like it will have a nice drape to it!
