Looming just around the corner

is Mother's Day!

And, my mother is extremely picky.

As she has been asking what I have been knitting lately, I have the feeling she would like something extra special to mark the occasion.

Mom likes sleeveless v-neck sweaters; however, she is not a fan of wool and prefers silk or cotton.

I am not fond of knitting with cotton.

With Mom in mind, some fourteen months ago I ordered some yarn from the nice lady at Blarney Yarns on Etsy and she specially dyed it in a color selected by Mom. 

The yarn is a lovely blend of organic cotton 51% and bamboo 49%.  It is really soft and nice.

This will be the pattern:

Pattern:  Diana by Melissa Leapman in Hot Knits

I cast on earlier today and things have been moving right along:
