Al's been fairisling. After an agonizing decision about which Koigu yarns to mix, she decided on this combo. SOME people felt the two colors wouldn't mesh well. I think she followed her instincts and they are lovely together. Al is a most devoted Koigu knitter. (today's her birthday too.......) As her mom I still relive the day. We were watching the Winter Olympics after my epidural kicked in..... 1988. It was a leap year. She should have been born on 2/29 because she doesn't like her birthday! She clearly is missing my gene on that one!
