I finished two other projects on Thursday night, so according to my finish two-start one rule I can start my Lofoten pullover kit, but then I realized that it calls for size 5 needles, and both my fixed and interchangeable size 5's are in the lilac leaf shawl. Now I need to decide whether I'm going to wait until I finish the shawl before I start the sweater or pull the interchangeable out so I can use them and start it now!

The wood is from a fallen tree in my father-in-law's back yard, and the leaves are the leaves from that kind of tree. Kolrosing is a Scandinavian wood-decorating technique. It involves scoring a groove in the wood, and then rubbing in finely ground coffee and cinnamon to create the color. The Pinewood Forge website has some information about kolrosing - I think this is also where Robert ordered his tools.
The trivet is really lovely - the picture doesn't do it justice. It now lives permanently on our dining room table!
