Hiya from a chilly NoFla! As a note of introduction...I wanted to say hello and make a project statement. I'm planning on knitting Anne Budd's Tyrolean Stockings from IK Fall 2007, and either Eunny Jang's Tangled Yoke Cardigan or Cathy Payson's Placed Cable Aran (from the same issue). The latter sweater "looks" more like me, but Eunny's design looks like it would be so much fun to knit! Oh...the yarn. I'll be spinning to knit. The Tyrolean Stockings...will be a blend of Shetland and Gulf Coast Native - probably "natural" grey/cream. The sweater? I'm not sure yet. I'll either spin a blended roving...Mohair and Romney, or I'll card some Border Leicester and blend it with the Mohair/Romney or with some creamy GCNI.
