Balls of fun arrived!
Filed under: General, Knitting
Posted by: ....Tina @ 5:21 pm

I arrived home today from shopping to discover that two boxes from Knit Picks were waiting for me.  When I opened them I found they contained all the yarn that I had ordered this week.  I wasn’t expecting it until the middle of net week:

new yarn stash

I have the idea of using the Glace’ pattern shown above as a starting point to design a Faire Isle Winter Maternity Coat for my daughter.  You can see the partial swatch above.  Here is a better view of the swatch:

pattern repeat

The reason I stopped at this point was the yarn I using was over a year old and I was afraid that the new yarn might be a slightly different color.  However, you can get a good idea of the final pattern from the photo above and the detail photo below:

Now I only hope it will turn out…..
