Bubbles

Ordered yarn for the Bubble Pullover from Knitting Nature today (and I plan to make mine quite a bit bigger than the one in the photo for a real eighties look :)) I got one of my all-time favorite yarns, Jaeger Matchmaker Merino DK, on clearance at Webs (that's yarn.com, in case you wanted to take a look) for only $1.99 a skein. Now that's a bargain if I ever saw one! Which is, however, not to be celebrated, b/c the producer is discontinuing the yarn. DISCONTINUING Matchmaker Merino DK?!?! That's a crime against the knitting community, nothing less.

I hope they're sending this via the beaming machine. I can't wait to get my hand on all that lovely fluffy yarn and start knitting this beautiful pattern that I've been drooling over for months now.

very eighties - it'll be awesome. I still LOVE your other sweater, that cool green one with the wicked soft wool - where's you get that pattern? not that I want to steal your thunder...hehehehe

Haha, my Martian green raglan sweater! I love it!! Yet another discontinued yarn - I don't get why they always discontinue the yarns I like the most. Anyway. The pattern for the sweater hails from knitsimple magazine, winter 2005. See http://www.sixthandspringbooks.com/
