are you ready..

i sure am ...
look what arrived today all the way from the uk via ebay ..
thank goodness for ebay as i was wanting a substitute yarn for the design called lotusby marie wallin from rowan book no 45.[i have every one ] ..
it is not often that i knit for myself as i never really wear knitted things over here..
now that i have climatised [after 12 yrs]i find the winters can be a little cool..
we still have a Mediterranean climate and i find that it can be a little chilly on a morning but honestly i love this design and i do love a knitting challenge as i cut my knitting teeth on patricia roberts patterns in the late 60's .
patricia roberts patterns are the type that you definately cannot talk or watch tv or listen to music while you are knitting..
so if ever you find yourself in solitary confinement somewhere these patterns will be great help.
well i'm off to find my bamboo[favorite ]needles and a quite corner to cast on and as i am meeting the girlfriends at barbs tomorrow this will be a lovely little project..
you can watch the progress but i shall warn you rowan patterns are definately not a quick knit fix...

This gives me hope if I find myself in solitary confinement!!! I cannot knit, but you sure make me wish I could. This sounds exciting and I will be following your progress dear friend.

The wool looks great. You in solitary confinement, I don't think so.
