    I just love your colour combo for your sweater! Both are lovely but the brown and blue is really nice

    Lovely Sweaters! I took your advice and purchased Mountain Mist to try for my first colorwork sweater. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I am so jealous of your crazy knotting skills! Not to mention your designing skills! You have children!
    Here I am taking months( yes months!!!) to finish anything!
    Hi do you find time to knit?
    How did you learn to knit so fast?
    You both are amazing!!!!!
