I just started knitting Arisaig on Saturday (link to pattern is in side bar). I love the lacey pattern and it is going a lot better than the swatch did. I've learnt to read what's coming next and the stitch markers have been more a reassurance than anything else. The 2x2 rib was relatively quick too. I think after a couple of pairs of socks, 4 ply wool is a lot less daunting than it used to be.
Progress as at the end of lunchtime, knitting at my desk again.
Close up of the pattern, unfortunately with the macro button on my camera refusing to work. Still looking good though.
The colour is actually somewhere between the two photos, and is looking curiosly similar to the colour of my shedir hat!
