Good things come in threes

Some of you asked about the yarn I'm using for my golden vest. It's Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester 2/8. To quote Rachel Zoe, this yarn is bananas. It's got the same lofty haloed look of Shetland, but it's so much softer.
I die.

Now to tell you about a delightful thing that happened to me. Believe it or not, I won another giveaway, the third this year! (Please don't hate me.)

Rebecca from the pretty Poshyarns was giving away a copy of the new fall Rowan.


It's the quintessential Rowan fall issue. Beautiful people in beautiful places wearing beautiful knits. Sigh... I love it.

I have enough Cocoon in my stash for this gorgeous thing.
I'm hoping to cast-on soon.

I'd love to knit this as a cardigan.

This is the PERFECT sweater for a walk in the autumn leaves, don't you think?
And can you imagine how luscious it would be, all those gorgeous colours of Felted Aran Tweed?

I would sell my soul for this girl's hair.

Even more lovely was what Rebecca included in the package:
A pretty fabric flower that she made. It's just the perfect thing for my fall coat. Thank you so much Rebecca! Check out her shop for more beautiful creations.

I promise, I'm not entering any more contests for at least a year. I even resisted this wonderful giveaway. But you shouldn't. So go see t.
