It's Here! It's finally here!
This is the most expensive project I have ever made, even at the reduced price of $6.70 a skein. I have to tell you, though, that this yarn is worth every penny of that! It is soft and squishy and WONDERFUL! But then again, I adore Merino wool, and this is absolutely top of the line. I went ahead and sprung for the yarn called for for a few reasons.
- I LOVE merino, and I wanted this sweater to be something that I couldn't wait to put on.
- I wanted the stitches and cables to be as crisp as in the picture. I think someone described it as like fondant.
- Pure Merino is shrink resistant! That means that not only is it soft and incredible, I'm far less likely to ruin it :D
- Bordeaux is such a luscious color.
And since I had the camera out, and I can, I present some shameless kid promotion.
I let Brendan feed himself his own mashed potatoes last night and he was amazingly clean! The spoon is mostly for decoration. he ate it all with his fingers.
And now some cute pics of the older kiddos, just because.
