the gray i used or the red, coral, green, and yellow may not match the actual colors of yarn at all. they are used here only to help show the rose graph in color instead of symbols.

I saw this sweater pattern picture online while yarn shopping at Astrid's. Now I have to knit it. So I wonder if anyone else out there is interested in a knit along for this sweater? I love it. After I finish the kauni sweater I am working on I will be starting this one. Waiting on my yarn now. I like the fast shipping times and yarn choices I get at Astrid's so I will be getting mine there. I wanted to use the exact yarn as used in the pattern. Matching the colors is important to me because I want to end up with a result as close to that pic as I can get.
if you think you might want to join me and knit it with me send me an email and let me know. Already sure you want to do it? contact Astrid for same yarn. Click her Purple link above and go to her site.
New Knit-A-Long Blog up for this sweater!
I can't wait to get started!!

It really was not the fleece at all. It was how I washed it. But I didn't know so I will just do better from now on.
My twist is uneven and I do wish I could get a good twist going on so it would be all nice and smooth. Any hints or tips on making a better yarn would be greatly appreciated!
OTN a new cardigan for someone special. Using Kauni in teal mix and wine mix with roses roses roses all over it. I am using size 3 needles and the Philosopher Wool 2 color method. Loving the fabric I am making. I did get off to a false start with the ribbing and have to do it 3 times before it was ok. I love Kauni. Next I want to get the natural one AA and the gorgeous gray one BB. And of course every color she sells!!
At first I thought it was just me, that Kauni was new and it was a passing fancy of mine but there are thousands on the internet knitting it right now. So it can't just be me loving this simple, plain, wonderful wool. Watching the color bands show up and feeling the wool fabric growing.

So there is a never ending list of stuff that kids want. The oldest boy grand kid had a birthday on Saturday. He turned 14, he wants a video game and to go to the Harry Potter new movie.
So I put his birthday off until next week and hope we get to go. Right now youngest grandson's dad, my boy Harold is using my car to get to work every day. The 'van' quit again. If it was a horse we would put it down for good. My car has a bad habit of just quitting. Driving along on a freeway and the motor cuts off. We can't figure it out but are trying to get at least one of them fixed for reliable transportation.
Our life here is an adventure. Everyday brings something new.
