clockwise, starting at top right: 3/4 completed Mesilla (in Filatura di Crosa Mille Fili Fine from stash); lace border for potential stole knit in crochet cotton (pattern evolving as I go); 2 1/2 inches of body of the Ribby Cardi in TLC CottonPlus; 3 inches of a cabled tank from last summer's Vogue Knitting - in the yarn called for in the pattern!
