Reprieve

 
You have persuaded me. The Asta has been pardoned, and when I wore it the other day, it got raves, and it was warm and snuggly and comfy, and with the right pair of boots it made me want to take on the world. Thank you all, as always, so much, for holding my hand. I'm already eyeballing another Kate design from Yokes, and before I do that I'm going to take your advice about the value finder thingy, but first, this, which consumed me all day and through many episodes of Foyle's War on Netflix:
This is a test knit of something amazing. It seems to be all sweaters around here at the moment. Must be I'm cold.

  2. The Astra has been saved to be worn another day. I can now breathe again. Love the next rosy-pinkish, squeezably soft project even though it is not a scrap quilt. hee hee

  4. Yes your home does look beautiful and inviting. Very pretty and comfortable. I'm glad you didn't rip out the yoke on the other sweater. This new one looks lovely too. I love the textures of the stitches and the colour is soft and cosy looking.

  5. Yeah!!!! Glad the weather has worked out and that you found the perfect boots to accompany it!!!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE the rug... looks very similar to one I inherited from my husband's grandmother.... actually given to me by my Mother in law as his grandmother likely would never have given it to me... She was not the president of my fan club... LOL..... The front room looks so inviting and cheerful!!!! xox

  13. Well, what better accompaniment than Michael Kitchen and 'Foyles War' for another amazing bit of knitting? And what a lovely cosy nest to sit in whilst doing it....

  14. What a very very nice living room!

    And as I spot a whole bunch of cushions, I think you will be a good candidate for our running challenge #stapelkussens (or prove you have the biggest pile of cushions ).
