Soon as I read your title Velvet Underground popped into my head ;) Now it will probably be there all day... I do love that yarn-it's a really crisp tweed. Lots of tweeds I'm looking at right now are kinda muddy, but that one has definition. Lovely.
Your pattern and the beautiful yarn is coming out so gorgeously! Oh, and wnjoying coffe a quite day sounds so great! It's what I long for. I think I haven't had one for year, due to small kids ... one 10 months and one 2 years and 4 months. Recommendation to you if/when you'll have your own ... Make sure you have someone near who can babysit every now and then ... if you can be without your small sweaties (I suspect thelast issue is my problem though). Great knitting!
ah sunday... my favorite. this photo just sums up everything good about sunday for me. and so nice to see it on a cold monday morning... warming me up and bringing a bit of peace! p.s. *thank you* so much for sharing your swatch/ design process with this sweater. i really want to knit it and it has been wonderfully demystifying to read about the process!
I have just scheduled myself a Sunday like this, two weeks from now. Yesterday involved much cussing and fist-shaking as I re-edited Episode Four of Christa Knits (and still managed to publish it with a glitch in place).
Thanks so much for letting me read your blog post about the swatch for this sweater - I've already heard good things back about this episode and its content, including your piece!
I saw this and just had to comment- I've had coffee in several posts lately... always close to yarn I would hate to see with a coffee stain. It's my way of living dangerously... well, coffee is just my way of living... well, not really, but I'm a big coffee drinker. Love your blog, Happy knitting, ali www.skeinsherway.com
