« My Ulterior Motif | Main | Rumor Has It That... »

November 16, 2005



Whoa,23 degrees!Today in Philly the temp was 68 degrees at 6 am. Strange.


Oh Bron, your Victorian Motif Sweater is coming along so nicely! I just might make myself one!


Thanks for the heads up on the # of days left... it's closer than I was letting myself realize... ARGH! I'm in big trouble now (well, I was before you told me... but now I KNOW I am).

And thanks for posting the pattern for the motif!


Bron, it is 65 degress and rainy here. I want some cold weather. And try washing the Highland before making up your mind. I have found most wools soften after washing.


Thanks for the motif pattern!

I'm a Christmas junkie too. :)


I want cold weather too! I put nylons on today and immediately peeled them off. We're still in the mid-to hi 70's.

I'm anxious to get my tree up this year too, but I have to do some rearranging in the living room before that can happen.


Your sweater is going to be beautiful. Thanks for sharing the motif pattern. Can you translate the yarn size that you are using? What is 3/2 (Or was is 2/3)?


Cyndy - It's good to have you commenting again - where the heck have you been hiding???

Thanks, Margaret. :) The only problem I have when I think about writing up the whole pattern is that it'll be nigh onto impossible to write it for different sizes! I'll have to think about that one for awhile. :)

Mia - I'll have to do a small swatch & wash it...but I have my doubts. I'm so dang picky about the itchy factor, it's not even funny. Sigh.

Cec - 3/2 Perle cotton is, um, smallish. A size 3 crochet cotton (I believe) is the same size. I'm using an F hook if that helps any. :) I'd say it's about the size of baby yarn.

Marie - I have to move my treadmill to put up the hasn't been getting much of a workout these days anyway. Sigh.


Thanks for sharing the pattern for your beautiful motif. I was looking at the sweater and thinking, "I wish she would put up the pattern" and then I read further and there it was. Yay! I love Johnny Depps Willie (ha! I couldn't resist).


The sweaters are looking great. I need to try that motif...

and get Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

It's supposed to get into the 30's tonight which is cold for us.


Your motif is really neat! Thanks for posting the pattern :)

It was in the fifties here today with pea-soup fog. It's cooling now and raining like hell :)


Robbyn - Fog & rain! Lucky you - I love that kind of weather. :)

Dawn - There isn't much that Johnny Depp could do that I wouldn't like. ;)

Vera - I do think Depp went over the top just a bit, but the rest of the movie was great. :)
