Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

So now we'll see

Well, I have the yarn:

Malabrigo Kettle Dyed Pure Merino Wool Worsted in "Glazed Carrot". The color is a mix of the colors shown here. The centered is slightly too brownish and the home pix of the yarn are a little too bright. You'll have to trust me on the color, kay?

And I have chosen the pattern:

I even got gauge on a swatch (although I had to switch from size 8 to size 9) - (I need to learn to loosen up)

Now I need to find the TIME!!!!!!!

Should I just join in on this???

OMG. I didn't even think about using Malabrigo on the Arwen. I was thinking of the Pure Merino. What a great idea!
