You are so right about a project feeling different with the right yarn. I can just tell how gorgeous your Saroyan is going to be in this MadTosh. I've not seen this color before and I now MUST have it. Thanks also for the blog links ... I'm in love!

That yarn is absolutely delicious! I hope the finished project brings you joy!


When you do get around to knitting the Rocky Coast Cardi, definitely check out the Coastal Knits group on rav. It's worth seeing how different people have gotten the sweater to fit. It looks like the bigger sizes fit fine, but the smaller sizes need some tweaks.


Oh Little Bee is so awesome! Such a beautifully written book! I've read it twice and just loved it.


Ah, that is such a pretty yarn! I cannot wait to see how this project comes out!


That looks like a dreamy knit!


your scarf looks buttery soft and love the color!!

I downloaded Little Bee awhile ago--why haven't I listened to it yet???? You've inspired me.

I started this book some time ago but I never finished it. I am a very visual reader so when you describe something graphically, I see it vividly. There were a couple of scenes that really stuck with me and I needed to walk away for a bit, but I do need to get it finished.


aw andi, your so kind! makes me giggle, i love crushing on things too. i love your m.t. and scarf. i've had the saroyan queued for too long, you've inspired me to cast on.
thank you for sharing all the lovely links!


I know what you mean about finding just the right yarn. I'm sure your scarf will turn out beautifully! I love Lori's blog, too - isn't it eye candy?! Love it!!


I loved knitting Saroyan, such a nice pattern and your yarn is perfect. And who doesn't love to see a man crocheting :D


I love your Saroyan, Andi. The madelinetosh is a great choice. I just finished Little Bee a couple days ago—a very well-written book.


Really pretty indeed! :)


Lovely Mad Tosh - both the color and the weight. Saroyan will be perfect in the yarn with all its leaves and stockinette.

And glad to hear about that FO this weekend. Slacker ;)


you have the best links...so many goodies to see and enjoy...I am in love with the man hooker...what a sweetie...I showed the husband and all he did was smile and shake his head...hey... it could have been Hugh J or Don Draper or even David B...but then we wouldn't get anything done coz we'd be wearing out the video just watching them...ha ha!!!
Have a best weekend ever sweet girl....
