    I love the way this looks. I have to pull out the book and see what it looks like in the book. Very nice dyeing as well.

    Ooh, very pretty!

    Very nice. So, um, any particular brand of easter dye? I’d love intensly bright green yarn :)

    I LOVE your swatch! I then went and looked at the photo in the book. I can’t believe it is even the same pattern. I would have never been interested in it if I hadn’t seen yours. And your yarn colors are really beautiful.

    Oh, my heavens! What a gorgeous swatch. The yarn choice is great — nice & crisp! — and the colors enhance the pattern. Excellently well done! (Picked up 10 PAAS kits the other day, $.25 each; NOW I know what to do with the yellow & green!)

  13. Kelli Page Says:

    This is a sock pattern. I just bought sock yarn in similar colorway, now I know what to do! Beautiful pattern and colors.

  14. Judiper Says:

    Gorgeous–this swatch jumped right off the page at me!

  15. bufanditas Says:

    That’s a perfect pattern and color combination!! Know I have to go out and buy the book.

    I must have missed this one–it is my fffffavorite shade of green and the actual knitting, yarn / needle ratio, everything is just perfect.

    Not just one, but TWO–count them–TWO gold stars.
