    YAY! Your cowl is looking fabulous! Can’t wait to see it on you! And boy am I jealous you two got to hang out – again! I’m sad that I couldn’t join in! Looks like you had a great day <3

    Your cowl is beautiful! I’ll have to check out the pattern…it looks as good as the show 🙂 Glad you had fun at the yarn shop!

    I’m so very envious of your knitty day, But wow, that wool! SO pretty. I can’t wait to see what you turn it all into!
    Also, your downton cowl…I think we’re using the same kind of yarn aren’t we? I had enough to do all the pattern repeats and a bit left over in the end.

    Though all three sweater patterns look pretty similar, for some reason the Grace pattern is speaking to me. I think you’ll look great in it.

    So many wonderful things in your post today Rachel, but the best is seeing your beautiful smiling face! You look and sound so very happy and it makes my heart just swell with joy.
    And all the pretty yarns, oh my, they are lovely! I can’t wait to see which cardigan make it on your needles.

    I seriously have to take you to some little knit shop and steal inspiration from you. How fun would that be!?

  7. All those cardigans are lovely. You got me oohing and aahhing over Jane Richmond patterns. 🙂

    i had such a fantastic time seeing you again!!! why oh why do the hours always fly by?? we just got home, and i haven’t even unpacked my yarn, but your pics make me so giddy for you! haha eek! can’t wait to see what cardi you pick!

  13. Melissa says:

    What a wonderful way to spend a day!! Your yarn is yummy and my vote is for the Grace 🙂

  14. Gorgeous photos! I especially love the photo with all the beautiful skeins of yarn!! That Raventwist skein in Djinn is absolutely fabulous, I just might have to look up the website. As someone who has also been yarn shopping with Rebecca, I have to agree that she’s quite the enabler!

    Can’t wait to see what Jane Richmond cardigan you decide to cast on for. I’ve knit both Georgia and Grace, and started an Audrey (but decided I wasn’t feeling the colour). Good luck!! Espresso will look fabulous as any one of those cardigans 🙂

    what a delight to read your posts I had to play catch-up and I have covered a few tonight. Love your knitting, I am working on a pair of chambray blue soxs for Micah. It is a rather bulky yard for soxs but these are made more house soxs or sleep soxs, but it does knit up way faster than regular sox yarn….We have a place called Julie’s Yarn Shoppe and another I found in Moncton that I dream of getting to again soon, Cricket Cove…just loved it. Must try the tea latte just now. Night night my ginger lemon tea is calling as is my pillow. 1000 gifts is my book of choice this week, Ann VosKamp, your post on gratitude would fit right in with her point in the book. TIl next time night night.

  16. […] have far too many plans for the next projects on my needles (last week‘s wool has been wound into cakes!) but I’ve resolved to get down to business completing […]
