This morning, as I was knitting my Seaweed Wrap, I was listening to Brenda Dayne talk about Alice Starmore on the Cast-on podcast called Personal Best. She praised this designers’ incredible sense of color as she interviewed another woman who had just finished the Oregon Sweater. I believe that I mentioned in my last post that I had recently ordered the Oregon Vest from Virtual Yarns and so, listening to this podcast filled me with even more anticipation of my soon-to-be delivered package from Scotland. When I drove down to the mailbox and opened my box I almost hyperventilated when I saw the following postage label –
I was a good girl and resisted the urge to rip open the package then and there. I knew it would be an adventure in color and I wanted to savor every minute.
Stunning colors, aren’t they? A feast of the eyes! Makes a trip to Oregon in the autumn awfully appealing.
On the bottom of the package was the pattern. The colorway the model is wearing is ‘Spring’ and I think these colors are incredible. I ordered the ‘Autumn’ colors because they are suited more for my skintones.
I am very, very excited about knitting this vest but won’t be able to start it until the Seaweed Wrap is done. I did a few calculations and figured out that I need to knit 33 rows a day on the wrap for it to be finished in time to go to Tennessee with me. I pulled out the reversible skirt that I will be wearing it with and I think it will look great with either side of the skirt.
Afterall, one does need to travel light these days, right?
