Alpine swatching

Alpine swatching

I saw this pattern just after it was released a couple of weeks ago - a freebie from Berocco - and went oooo! Neat little cardi, good sleeves, more or less 12ply yarn, and guess what I got at the last Spottie sale?? A rich purple Cleckheaton 12ply, 6 balls of at $2.99 each! Soooo, if all goes well (I'm about to start the pattern of the left front), I shall have a soft little purple cardi for Spring!

Other news - hectic week at work. Culminating in two days of conference - full on, as are all such events, but very informative and inspiring and I networked and made friends and had a good time. I'll make up the knitting time as the term winds down over the enxt few weeks.

Tomorrow, we welcome a family guest to the house - Jack is going to stay for a couple of months. Pics as soon as the light cooperates.

Rest assured, I have been catching up on blogs, and you will be hearing more from me soon....
