Klaralund Rocks!

Ok. Had to slip back into that College-speak from the 80s. Yes, I had big hair....and pink hair. Since Wendy was brave enough to show us her pictures of post-shower hair, I am going to show you the punker day pics:

Yup. That's me second from the right. Ah. The 80s. I have no idea why anyone longs for that time period. The planet doesn't need the hair spray.

I just adore Klaralund. I started with the first swatch (block) and am amazed at how gorgeous the colors of this yarn are. Just to remind you, I'm making the Klaralund in the suggested pattern yarn because Blues and Greens look great on me.

Ever have one of those knitting experiences that make you want to boil water, make a huge pot of tea, pop in some scones and sit on the comfy chair all day? Yup. That's this pattern. I'll take a picture for tomorrow's post.

I was looking at the Rowan book again, and here are two of the patterns that I really like:

The Deborah

The Ash

Both designs are interesting and challenging to me (a newish knitter). Plus, they would be perfect weight for Texas weather. So, maybe I will have to consider adding them to "the list."
