This is Louisa Harding Grace. The color will be # 5- a rich, mossy green.
It is always a surprise to me to see what people will choose when it comes to voting. To ask someone who and what they'll vote for is a rather indelicate question. But in the case of the autumn sweater project I'm planning, it's clear it's the textured tunic from Stefanie Japel that's winning the race. Voting isn't closed yet so if you have a different favorite, you need to vote on my sidebar. I'll be knitting the favorite.
The eldest child has indicated that she wants to own sweater number three. In all fairness, it'll look best on her. I don't think she has a spare ounce of fat on her so it'll look better on her body than on mine. In order for me to knit this for her, she must present herself at my home for measurements. That, at the least, guarantees a long visit with my first born babe. The yarn? Well, she wants green, probably a yellowish green, if I know her. So much for the color. But the yarn itself has been staring at me for a few days now. If I don't knit this in Louisa Harding's Grace, well then, I'm just losing out. And so is Sebba. It is half wool, half silk and has a beautiful sheen to it. It's incredibly soft. This yarn beckoned me to acknowledge its existence the day I went to fetch roving for Rachel's thrummed mittens. I haven't seen it in green, but I know it exists. A mossy green. Even though it won't be me who is wearing it around town, I'll still be able to see it worn on occasion.
