Caution: This Post May Induce Swooning.

That means you, Kate.

My October package arrived from Sundara.


And, is it gorgeous or what? (Sorry these photos aren't better. It's late on a very grey day.)

The pattern is very lacy,with a falling leaves motif; it's really lovely. Do I mind that I am just finishing up a pair of lacy, dark red socks? Indeed, I do not. This yarn would also make a sumptuous pair of Baudelaires. Food for thought.

I wore a dress of nearly that identical color today! Looks awesome. Jealous to not be in the petals collection, I must say . . .

Oh Laura, that colour is perfect. Sundara is a true artist (makes me want to put the jello/kool-aid away for life)!

That rich cabernet yarn screams Baudelaire. It looks drinkable.

The Fall Folaige yarn is indeed great looking. I'm planning on making the Traveler's stocking from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road book ( and Vogue magazine, Fall 06) with that yarn.
