In just 6-8 short weeks, it'll be here

The yarn I finally picked out to make my February Lady Sweater is on its way. But it'll be a while. I ended up going with the Aurora 8 merino wool in New Leaf. The color spoke to me when I saw it. It said, "Meg, pick me. I'll be a fabulous sweater and make your eyes sparkle!"

Now with a promise like that, who could resist? I can't wait to jump on the band wagon of knitters making the sweater and land in a big soft pile of pretty yarn.

In the meantime, while I patiently wait for the yarn to get here, I'm hoping to finish a project or two (or three). Ok, four.

Hey Meg:

The yarn you chose is gorgeous, and the waiting game is sure to be painful...but 6-8 weeks *is* enough time to get a few WIPs done :)

The Feb Lady Sweater is a lot of fun to knit. I'm scared about the sleeves (going on after-the-fact) but will figure it out somehow.

Cheers,
Holli

Oooh....lovely! That sweater certainly looks tempting. I feel a little knitter's jealousy coming on.
