Oh wow - lace And cables And purple!! That sweater is gonna be gorgeous.


Cute cards! Love how the cable & lace is working up.


And they'd be right! That's going to be a dynamite cardigan. I can't figure out how you do it. I'm struggling to finish a few hats and here you are just tossing off sweater after sweater. Hope you're having a great holiday weekend.


Marriage is love. You just marry that darn cardigan! That IS going to be lovely for spring, it has a nice balance of cables, lace, and stockinette. And it's PURPLE. Yay for purple. And I don't see how could possibly knit or crochet any faster!!

I am celebrating having the day off :)


Ohhh... you do know that Sugarplum is my favorite color ever, right? I can't wait to see this develop... I'm going to think of this one as vicarious knitting.


I love the sugar plum CE, too. I look forward to seeing what yarn your ordered for Water Lily. :)


Wow, I go away for a couple of days and you're casting on AND finishing - but am I really surprised? Nah.

The purple is coming out just lovely.

I was at Stitches West this weekend and pick up a pattern and yarn for a White Lies Design and I was talking with Joan (the designer) and mentioned you just finished the Secret Garden Vest and it was so LOVELY! She was thrilled.


Abby - exactly! Anything purple has GOT to be good. :::wink:::

Thanks Chris - I'm never sure if it'll turn out the way I envision it until I actually get to knitting. :) I'm really pleased with how this is looking.

Jillian - if not marriage, at least a long & passionate affair. Passion purple, after all. :::wink:::

Leisel - Sugarplum is a wonderful shade of lavendar and I haven't seen it anywhere else but in Cotton Ease. I was saving this for something special and I think I've found it. :)

Wendy - It's from Elann & I won't know until it gets here if it will truly work (ie. be soft & drapey enough) but up to $22.00/skein for Colinette is just beyond me! yikes!

Marie - how nice that you mentioned me and how cool that you talked to Joan. :) I can't wait to hear all about your Stitches West adventure. :::grin:::

Those cables! That color! So pretty. No wonder you're in love.


Oophs. That last post was mine.
