The Yarn is HERE!

Oh good grief I need to knit faster if I am going to avoid total temptation! I have not finished the Valkyrie Vest yet. In order to make good on my promise to myself I need to get that bad girl finished in order to begin work on Lloie's Cardigan.

And the yarn is HERE!!!!!! I was amazed by the lightning fast speed from Schoolhouse Press!!!

The body of the cardi will be the blue, it looks more royal here but it is a true rich navy. The leaves on the yoke will move from the raspberry into the rose and then the cream will be the petals around the neck. I love the colors and think it will be so pretty!! The emerald and the black will join the narrow cream band between the body and the yoke.

So, I can't wait to start. I want to GO! But in listening to my own set rules I can hear Elizabeth herself whisper in my ear............

KNIT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Man, is everyone doing colorwork now? I'd better get cracking too, so I can join the herd!
