Happy Easter!  I came home this weekend to sunny skies, green grass and little flowers popping up in the lawn.  We've had family visits, lots of time to sit out in the sun, dog walks and visits with the neighbour's dog for some ruff and tumble play.  Very fun.
All week long I had knit not a stitch as I'd brought the Nintendo DS to Waterloo with me and was absorbed hard core in Pokemon Diamond. But color stitches were calling me, so this weekend I've been working on Folklore:

I love the brights!!  The rest of the sweater is going to be the navy color which should be able to support that much color.  This is another top-down yoked sweater so I'm confidently re-sizing the pattern and using a different gauge of yarn.  My intention is to compare the size of this yoke against my purple and green one to ensure I'm on the right track. 

This is a process knit for sure though.  I'm not even sure I care if the finished project is flattering or not. I'm just having so much fun getting wild and crazy with the color.  It's been awesome.

And in other news, have you heard of Stuff on my Cat?  Today, we had stuff on my dog:

 Oh my! I just checked, and there's also Stuff on my Dog.  I should have known....


  1. How is it that almost every thing you knit is something I would gladly knit too? That's a great sweater. It didn't capture my attention the first time you mentioned it, but it did this time.

    Happy spring!

  2. That is one of my all time favourite patterns! Enjoy!

  3. Laurie, your sweater is going to be beautiful I like it much better than the greyish version shown on ravelry. It appears to be what I would call the Newfie Mitt stitch. IS it?

  4. Very bright sweater. Can't wait to see it finished.

  5. Looks like you are off to a great start. I love the bright colours.
