Good times!

I just got home from the town and opened the package that had come with the mail today and had to show you this right away... The yarn is lovely, the colours rich and the pattern beautiful. Perfect! But now excuse me, I will have to knit for a short while before bed time.

PS. I bought Tudor Roses from Jannettes Rare Yarns.

  10. The colors of the sweater are so beautiful. It looks as if it could keep you warm on two fronts...the actual sweater and the lovely warm colors. I know that it will be exquisite coming from your hands. There is a lovely children's book in this country about a mouse who gathers all of the colors and warmth of his world. All of the other mice are busy gathering seeds etc. for the long winter, but guess who saves the day when winter's cold hand embraces them all in the stone wall? This story, though a twist on a familiar old tale, always warms my heart. Thanks for sharing all of the beauty you create.

  18. It seems I'll have to change my mind on the comment I made the other day about Fair Isle pattern not suiting me. This one that you have pictured is absolutely gorgeous and I'd try it on if I saw it in the store. I love those rich colors.

    Now I see I simply have not done enough searching for the right patterns.

  24. You really do like a challenge, don't you? And I agree with LaurieM: this delicious bit, when you can't wait to get started on the new project, is definitely the best of all! Good luck, bonne chance, go n'eiri an t-adh leat (how do I say it in Finnish?)
