that I also bought myself a little birthday present? I ordered this yarn to make this sweater. After all, I need some simple knitting for public gatherings, Alice is a little too involved for conversation.

And she does it again, choosing the classiest pattern possible! Can’t wait to see this one come to be, with your magic knitting fingers.

I’m so glad you had a nice birthday. You got some well-deserved goodies, let me tell you. Them’s is some kickin’ boots!

P.S. I can’t stop grinning at Ty’s photo. Such a sweetie! Lucy sends her love :-)

That is such a pretty jacket! I love the “piping” and the ruffle border. Can’t wait until Rowan 36 is at my lys!

What a gorgeous pattern!
That hem looks so pretty, though I kind of wish it were continued on in the same way for the sleeves.

Makes me wish (once again, for the billionth time) that I had the ability to browse Rowan patterns at a LYS nearby.

Kormew, I’ll bet the edging could be easily adapted to the sleeves. I might think about doing that, although I also like the simplicity of the sleeves as is.

You can see all the patterns on the Rowan site, although I know it’s not the same as looking at the mag close up.

I want to make Lisette in Leafy too. Must knit from the stash first. I should be ready to buy new yarn in another few years. :)

Love that sweater! And that way you’ll have something to work on when we meet up at KnitNY ;)

(PS: Em is planning to make that one too…)

great color. love that pattern!
