Swatch time

As promised, here is a swatch of the "Grapevine" colorway. At first I wasn't crazy about it, but it has totally grown on me! Christine is the proud new owner of this yarn... I hope you make some great socks :)! Go say hello to Christine, she has 5 kids and is a wonderful knitter! I think I am going to do a second version of this in all stripes as well once the heat subsides in Boston.




And, how cool are these stitch markers?! Lee Anne sent me these a few days ago and they are already in use on a secret project :) so, thanks Lee Anne, you are such a doll!

I love this colorway!

It actually captures the whole grapevine thing PERFECTLY. See, being Portuguese means I grew up in a neighborhood where all of our Portuguese neighbors as well as we, had grape arbors, so I know of which I speak!

I like the solid vine. It works a a stripe. And it's perfect how you mixed up the grape and added slight tinges of blues againt the natural color. It really looks like your peeking through the arbor on a sunny day!

So...uh...when will you be making more of this colorway? :-)

I would love to see it reversed... okay, maybe it wouldn't be a grapevine then, but solid purple stripes with green spots... yum! ... not that you need any more ideas. I hope you are having fun with all of this.
