My two cents (or colors) *smile*


My name is Stacey and I just recently joined the knit along. This will be my first cardigan so I'm pretty excited to get started. I also just love the pattern. I've been knitting for a little over a year now and I'm hooked. I have one daughter who is 4 years old and keeps me busy and I just recieved my bachelor's degree in business from Mount St. Mary's College. Ok, that's the quick and the dirty on my life story *smile* You can visit my blog to see what else I'm working on.

I have decided to use Patons Classic Wool in Chestnut Brown for the main part of my sweater and Tree bark mix for the sleeves. I don't know if you can really see how well the colors go together here, but trust me, it's nice *smile*

Here is another shot of the yarn, the tree bark is kinda greyish, brown, green in color so this is pretty close to what it really looks like. I plan to swatch tonight for gauge and then I'm off! *smile*

This Patons Classic Wool looks great! I just bought a bunch of sage green of that for a pullover for my little girl. I bought Russet and Dried Herb in Elann's Peruvian Highland Wool for the Ribbi Cardi. This is my first knitalong! I haven't started it yet, because it will be about my 12th project or something like that, but I am dying to start it! Maybe after Christmas. I'm using the Russet on the sleeves and the Dried Herb on the body. I took pics, but will have to post later.

I LOVE Patons Classic Wool. Aside from Cascade 220, I don't think there's anything much better, especially for the price!
