If you’re older, aren’t you supposed to be wiser? Then I must be très, très, très wise!! Thank you all for the wonderful birthday well wishes!!
Here are the roses that my husband got me. They are stunning!!
Sister Surly was not to be outdone!! She sent me the yarn to make Leap Year by Suvi Simola.
Some people think you have no imagination when you choose the same color and/or combination as the prototype — however, sometimes the color is a big part of what you LIKE about the prototype! Don’t judge me! 😉
Surly bought me Cumbria Fingering by The FIBRE Co. in colors Buttermere and Hadrian’s Wall from Fibre Space in Alexandria. It is heavier than the yarn called for and that is fine with me! It contains brown masham wool, which is a long wool variety.
You can also see a small metal tin in the photo:
They are stunning pearl stitch markers that are better looking than most of my earrings!!
My plan is to work on Leap Year at Knitting Camp, which starts at the end of 4th of July week…coming upon us very fast!! I have a lot to do before then !
