Well, I've really been chomping at the bit to start the KAL. 2013 knitting was dominated by the Rimes The Reason sweater - a project heavy on cables and big yarn. I'm really needing some lace knitting. Santa (aka hubby) did my shopping for me by purchasing more than enough madeline tosh merino light for this project. Hmmm......how did he know? (thanks Sarah). Anyway, I'm ready.
My yarn color is colorway Wicked and my inspiration is a needlepoint picture of the church in Kristinestad, Finland where my paternal grandfather was baptized, c. 1896. My grandparents brought this picture back from Finland for me when I was very young. A family member did the stitching and I treasure it dearly. I wonder if there was a subconscious draw because of the name Wicked! Ha!
I'm hoping to join in with friends and fellow knitters that I do not know yet. Kelli and Melissa always keep things interesting. Kelli, did you notice I photographed MY yarn on a silver plate too? It's tarnished, but silver, nonetheless! Happy New Year to you all!
