Fingers crossed!

Great pattern book stash enhance,ent! I had no idea Bergere was even available in english. Thanks for the link!


I've always admired Bergere de France patterns and am happy they are publishing them in English. I just bought that Tahki booklet too, especially for the final lavender pattern. Arnold is a cutie, now in his prime of kitty life! Crossing my fingers for the house!


Wow, thanks so much for sharing the link on the Bergere pattern English translation. I have been lusting after that sweater and even wrote to Vogue about it! I had given up!! Thanks to Gina and you for finding it and sharing it. I've ordered it this morning. I enjoy your blog and all your beautiful work. Happy Birthday Arnold!


LOL!!! Aw shucks! You're welcome, Bron :) I have been drooling over that sweater for a loooong time, and doggone it, I was bound and determined to get that pattern in English. I think I must've willed it into existence what with all that wishing and hoping, lol. Thanks for helping with the title and pattern number, couldn't have found it without you! :)

I'm now looking for some yarn to start it with. I'm allergic to wool too, so we'll have to compare notes. :)


Oooh, and I forgot to tell Arnold "Happy Birthday!" :) What a handsome boy he is!


I love all the Tahki patterns but especially the white, long-sleeved one with the cables at the front.

I'm so happy you found a house you love. Best of love that it will become yours.

My cat Morgan's birthday is today as well but he is 8 today. Happy Birthday Arnold :)


sheesh..not best of of luck :) I know you know what I meant ;)


Good luck with the house.

How weird about the same dye lot and Knit Picks, but I will say, I had an orphan skein of something from them for a year and ordered another skein of the same yarn (sock yarn) and darn if they weren't the same dye lot (LOL).

Jan in PA

Get the house. I'll bring my golf clubs and stay with you for a long, long time.


Yay for the English version! I'm about 1/4th of the way done with the doll sweater that I am working on from the most recent publication from them - kitting in french is interesting to say the least! Should I ever get the nerve up to try a full sized sweater pattern, I know what I am ordering!

Bonne chance avec la maison!
