Where one ends, the other begins.

I finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last night. This morning, the yarn arrived for Noah's Weasley Sweater. Even though I am in the midst of another knitted project, I just had to cast on for the sweater. The yarn is quite lovely. Feels so squishy & soft running through my fingers. I think I shall love knitting this sweater for a boy I love dearly.

The yarn is Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran (aka Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed) in Enamel, which is a wonderful deep blue color of old enamel cookware. It's 85% wool, 10% silk, and 5% cashmere. I saved about 40% ordering it from Discount Yarn Sale, however it took 3 weeks to arrive. While I was a bit impatient about this at first, in the end, the timing was quite perfect.

I was just looking at that pattern and wishing that I had the yarn to start it! :D

Enjoy it- that yarn sounds like a joy. I bet Noah will love it.

I was contemplating Weasley sweaters for the kids. I;ll be interested to see how you like the pattern. The yarn looks lovely.

Ooooo It's beautiful! I bet Noah is going to love it. How fun the yarn arrived as you had just finished the book!

I bet that will be a perfect color for him. I look forward to seeing your sweater.

Anyone else amazed that she is knitting with real straights? LOL
