ETA: Morgen didn't want to bump this post down ~ silly girl! So I bumped her comment into this post so it doesn't get lost altogether...thanks for joining with us again, Morgen!
"I scoured my stuff for quite awhile yesterday and never could locate my copy of Volume 2 of St. Denis with the Juneberry pattern in it. I am very sorry to say that this is not the first indication I have had that I really should be spending my time organizing the Wool Cave rather than starting yet another project. But, one of the delightful perks of being an adult is that one can, if one wants, tell that little good angel voice to go "take a hike" as it were.
So, with lovely yarn in hand, (Jared's own Shelter, color Tent which was purchased to knit up Jared's Dryad Scarf for Patrick) and a newly purchased and downloaded copy of the pattern (which I can now gift to someone when I am done, guilt-free, since I paid for it twice!)I sat down to get started. And here I am now, online, looking up SSP. Good thing I looked it up because my guess at how it was done was wrong. I am also considering tearing back and starting again on 8's rather than 9's, but we'll see.
Hoping to finish up a turtleneck sweater for one of my dogs this evening. She's had some serious health issues lately and it is unclear exactly how much time she has left. She is the Little Lamb to my Mary, and her kidney issues often leave her shivering, so she gets a special Noro Silk Garden sweater (it even has steeked sleeves!)
Thank you so much for letting me join along on this one! A project is ever so much more fun when someone else is slogging through it too. Your Juneberry is already looking gorgeous. It really is a perfect pattern; it's beautiful, it's relatively quick, it makes you think a bit etc. The yarn you're using? Is it Bartlett Yarns? I remember seeing you at Dublin Bay carrying that cone around and was trying to remember what, exactly, the yarn is. If it is Bartlett, I used it last year on an EZ sweater and LOVED the yarn. It IS rustic like you said, and that to me only adds to its charm.
Hugs to you this May Day!
