This wonderful wool is from Alice at wonderland-dyeworks.com. I won "HARVEST" from Claudia's blog. Claudia Raised a boatload of money for MS by this contest.
Now it is going to be in the heatstroke 100s here in Chicago this week, so Harvest will wait...but not for long. I am currently knitting some anklet socks from the other wool I won from Alice. It is a gorgeous handdye as well, in purples and greens. Definitely the skinniest yarn I've yet to knit up, say 8sts per inch.
Because I am so balanced, AHEM,
I am going to cast on with some Noro that is 3 1/2 sts/inch for the Swing Coat by CabinFever. Al found the pattern for me. She's seen a knitter who frequents Three Bags Full make 2 of them. She is sure I'm going to love it. I'm sure she's right!
I was debating the Eistein Coat, but fear it will give me bigger butt...
This coat is tapered at the waist.
Stay cool and remember: I hate March so this is just fine with me. Not a cold bone in my body!
