So it’s been a great year birthday-present-wise. Amy (and my folks and her folks) got me a new mattress and boxspring, my best friend Nan sent me a beautiful pendant, Tammy (and John and LML) sent me a great book of places to travel, etc. etc.
The big surprise this year was a gift certificate to Elann.com from one Ms. Sparkomatic! I’ve been sitting on it for a few days, trying to decide what to get with it. Elann’s inventory right now is pretty good, but I’ve not used any of the yarns in there before. However, I’ve heard good things about the Peruvian Collection Highland Wool. Since it’s so darn inexpensive, I decided to go for it.
I am getting three colors, Celery, Cedar, and Serengeti Sand, to make Janda from Knitty.
The celery color will be the body, the cedar color will be the sleeves, and the serengeti sand will be the detailing on the sleeves.
So a big THANK YOU to Heather for the gift certificate! This is one sweater I’ve wanted to make since I began knitting a couple of years ago, and now I’ll have the yarn to do it.
