It's about time to set up the KAL for the Tudor Roses patterns.
I don't know yet whether to set up with Yahoo groups or Blogger...are there any preferences? Marina? Carrie? Anyone else who wants to participate? Yahoo has the advantage of photoalbums and daily email digests, however Blogger seems to be the choice for most KAL's. and those of us already considering, use blogger.
My two pattern choices:
Jane Seymour - I have all the yarn (original Alice Starmore yarns) except the Fern color, which I can buy Jamiesons (or is it J&S?) and it will be fine.
Or Eliz I. I have the Rowan cashsoft 4ply for this, however am having reservations about the suitability of that yarn for this sweater. I'm thinking it just may be too soft..and I know from experience that it grows in blocking. Soft to wear - good, a Hebridean yarn that hold stitch def better - good....what to do?
Right now, what to do is go to work.
At this moment in time, I'm working doing alterations for a bridal shop in town, altering prom dresses. Dare I say this publicly?: This years Proms are going to look like 'early French Whorehouse' in ice cream sherbet colors.
I know I sound old and fuddy duddy - but I CANNOT believe what mothers are allowing their daughters to wear.
Brittany Spears and the like, get yourselves dressed so that the youth of America will put some modesty back in their clothing choices. Sorry, my rant.
