I love your cardigan and the blue you have chosen. I have looked at Madeline Tosh yarn online, but not in person. There are so many colour ways I like, not sure which I would choose. I have a cardi pattern that suggests it as the yarn to use and I want to make a start on it this winter. Jacinta

It's stunning, my dear, and I know it is even more so in person, because I just know it complements your beautiful blue eyes. :)

ps, yes, it has nearly been 10 years since you were here, and over 3 years since I was there. My, the passage of time.

Do you buy or spin your yarn?? I am in the process of learning to spin and simply had to ask =)

How gorgeous - the yarn, the cardi and it's wearer. And my yearning for madeline tosh yarn grows.

Awesomely stunning. The colour is sublime on you and the handiwork breathtaking. Looking forward to seeing you (and the cardigan too maybe) in person soon!

Wow just wow! You have really brought the colour alive with all the sutle hues reflected beautifully in the buttons. This is certainly a peice you can be proud to say when asked "oh this old thing why I made it my self". Love it strut it!

Thimbleanna said...

Oh Suse. It's Gorgeous! I LOVE the color -- and that pattern is just beautiful. It looks like a perfect fit too!

Tania said...

It's blooming glorious. Full stop. End of story.

PS. Any inspired suggestions for an absolutely non-pilling, but fabulous to knit with lace weight?
