Oatmeal isn't only for breakfast!

I ordered a new color for my ASJ. Oatmeal! It looks darker than the natural and lighter than the natures brown. I will incorporate this color when I begin the increases. So, the pattern will be 6 rows of brown,2 rows of oatmeal, 2 rows of natural. The last part of the pattern will then be oatmeal and natures brown in color. I still haven't decided the row pattern. I have plenty of time to decide, I am still working on the first 35 sets of decreases.

1- Socks for Soldiers in olive drab in a Regia stretch yarn
2- Cabled socks
3- Moogle socks
4-Pinata socks
5- angora bed socks
6-angora fingerless gloves
7-diagonal afghan
9-and matching hip skirt
10-Entrelac bag
11-cabled pc notebook sleeve
and last but not least
12- Adult Surprise Jacket
When I finish these projects, I start my mission to be a Master Knitter.

Lady B. in Diablo

So what can I say? I needed a new project bag for my sweater. LexieBarnes was having a 50% off sale and free shipping with a coupon code. Of course, that meant I had to buy 2 bags. I bought the Pixie knapsack also. A girl can never have too many bags! or yarn!
My ASJ is coming along. I have completed 14 rows. EZ would be proud of me, no mistakes yet!

Cast on of 315 stitches

I cast on 315 sts in the natural color and decided on a row pattern of 2 rows of natural and 8 rows of brown until I begin the increases.
