Sweater Progress and New Yarn

Thanks to the Americans and Madame Secretary (my grown up kids have introduced me to the concept of binge watching), I've made progress on Glacier and am within a couple of inches of doing shaping for the sleeves on the back piece.

Dingus was a bit surprised to be caught "napping" a/k/a chewing my tape measure in half on it, but he recovered gracefully and spent some time pretending he was helping me.

I got a  beautiful box full of yarn from The Plucky Knitter a few days ago and am in the process of debating its future.

Plucky

This is mostly Bello Worsted, Plucky's 55% Merino/45% Cashmere blend.  It's very soft and pretty and I've developed quite the fondness for it.  I liked these colors together, and played around with a collage of them, which convinced me I needed a long stripey scarf, sort of a riff on Dr. Who, to put them all together.

I'm going to devote some time to looking at patterns, but have also given some though to coming up with something very simple on my own.  I'm not sure if that's happening, but I'm really looking forward to knitting with this yarn!
