    LOVE the variegated blue yarn coupled with the white for the colorwork. Thanks for sharing. I can see doing something similar after seeing your sweater.

    Pretty sweater, but oh that yarn! Do you know if they have the same colorway in a yarn without alpaca (to which I am allergic)?

    Hey Emily. I use Strange Brew for all of my own patterns – I even use it for plain sweaters. Even this cardi that I made without pattern except for my strange brew recipe

    Found it! I gather you don’t sell the yarn.

    I just saw your gorgeous grump grandpa cardigan – and lost it! Would you please resend it to me? I posted a comment on your web too! You have it in all sizes but it featured a baby boy.

    I’ll keep looking too!

    Was the pink sweater with the lace yoke knit using the strange brew recipe? If yes, any special considerations needed to accommodate the decreases? Thanks.

    Sent from my iPhone, probably with strange words and typos from autocomplete.
