Worth A Try At Least

I'm making a jacket. I've made this one before... it's gorgeous. I traced a copy of the pattern from a 'Lush' jacket I bought years ago. Naughtiness! Anyway, it has a contrast inside the cuffs, which are over-long and can be folded up, or noticed as a peek. I started to weave a Houndstooth, or I started the samples of colour. But, Nah! So I pulled out my two chocker boxes of wool, tipped them upside down, and pulled out everything that looked good. This orange is THE ONE. I looked everywhere today (well, Spotters anyway) and then did a Google to fine Marta's Yarns, who still do the colour!!! Yay!!! The intention is to knit a cable pattern. Yum Yum...
Stay tuned.
