The excitement builds!

I should be folding laundry. Or at least swiffering the floors. I did a little of that. But mostly, I spent the evening alternately flipping wistfully through the Autumn Rose pattern and dancing around the house chanting "My book is here, my book is here!"


My book!!!

The first page has a close-up of the Autumn Rose fabric, and it is just exquisite! And here's the main picture with the pattern:



It's definitely the hardest project in the whole book, and I am definitely feeling nervous about it, especially considering I've only done a very small amount of stranded knitting before. But if there's one thing I've learned in knitting it's that if I take things a step at a time, I always seem to get there somehow, no matter how new or complicated or scary the technique is. Now the only question is, when will my yarn be here???

It's gorgeous! I can't wait to watch it grow. I'm sure you'll do fine, and don't forget about the magic of blocking. (not that I'd know, cuz I'm deep in a pile of ufos, but anyway...)

man, you are so trying to suck me into knitting this, aren't you. I am finally crawling out of the hole I have been in and reading the 800 some odd blog lines and then -- there it is Autumn Rose. Then I start wondering over to see -- where can I get that book. Oh, the temptation
