Not much to show for an entire afternoon and evening’s work! But it took me a little while to get my head around the pattern, and settle into the tension. I’m rocketing along now. This small scrap of sleeve also doesn’t account for the dozen or so rows I pulled out when I discovered that I’d very intelligently omitted row four of the chart. Sigh.


I went for the original colourway for a few reasons: I like it, Neil likes it, and it’s not all roses trying to create a new colour scheme for this type of project. I know there’s a lot out there that all look the same, but hey, I also shop at the Gap.

    Yowza! Already I can see that this is going to be gorgeous. I can’t wait to see more!

    Also, nothing wrong with the Gap - it’s function over form in there. :)

    Love it! I can only imagine how great the end product will be. Btw, thanks for the lovely email with the British currency in it. Can’t tell you how incredibly valuable it is these days over here! :)

    Oh, and I buy a lot of L.L. Bean/J.C. Penney kind of clothing–right up there with the Gap but more old fashioned. Sometimes it’s nice fitting in and matching the other outfits running around, isn’t it?

    MmmmmVenezia. Gorgeous. I see nothing wrong with the original colours. <3 They’re beautiful, and your sweater will be.

    Mmmm - I love that colourway too. Though I think I prefer the shaping of the Autumn Rose…

    Hey - thanks for tagging me! I’ve replied on my blog…
