Finally A Big Tulips!

Happy New Year to Everyone! Here's what I spent my New Year's Eve doing - working on my own Tulips cardigan. This is actually one of two combos that I have picked out - the other was much more pastel - y and much more my style but I decided to strike out and do something different. So far, I'm thrilled with the results. I'm just about to put the sleeves on scrap yarn which hopefully will get done today. I've actually arranged to have all week off from the shop - I must admit though I feel a bit a loose ends. Everyone is placing bets on whether or not I can actually stay away - we'll promises! So here's the colors I choose for this cardigan:

Dream In Color Classy
Strange Harvest Semi Solid Orange
Strange Harvest
Spring Tickle
Cocoa Kiss
November Muse Semi Solid
Trim: Cocoa Kiss

The semi solids are exclusive to Pick Up Sticks - Veronica did an amazing job with them. Have I told you how much I love this yarn? Oh - I have some new yarn making it's debut at the shop - hopefully this week - Blue Heron Beaded Wool - gorgeous colorways. Veronica recommended it to me as one of her favorites so of course, I had to try it.

Anyone have any New Year's Resolutions? I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours! :)

OMG Connie, that is a BEAUTIFUL start to a sweater!! Stop doing that will you? I've spent the morning re-organizing the stash and should not; I repeat, should not add more to it!
And post a picture.
You're working against me.
Enjoy your time at home; see you soon.

Just found your blog today and am enjoying it. I've written down some of your reading recommendations. I rated my reading throughout the year on my blog early in January. I'll be back!
