My current work in progress:

Comfort Fade Cardi by Andrea Mowry, knit from Miss Babs  Kaweah in the Parchment, Old Gold, Petrified Forest, and Espresso colorways, using 3.75mm and 4mm needles.


Okay, the old sweater whose photo I posted yesterday? I erroneously attributed the design to Meg Swansen.

Judy just sent me the following comment:

I found the pattern! Knitter’s 32, fall 93. It is by Jean Frost, though. Wendy, I like your colors much better. And of course keep posting older works!

And I could have sworn it was Meg Swansen and I used the colors called for in the pattern. That’s it. No longer will I rely on my failing memory for anything.

Thanks so much for finding the info, Judy!

    I agree, I WANT this pattern!!! Anybody have suggestions for a legitimate way to get it? (I’m not personally averse to illegitimate ways, but I wouldn’t want to go to that as a first resort! ;->)

  2. Lindsey-Brooke says:

    Hi,Caroline! Issue 37 is still available from Knitters magazine. Go to the Back Issues section of their website.

  3. Lindsey-Brooke says:

    I’m sorry, Caroline. I read the 32 as 37. Must be eye-strain and wishful thinking.

  4. Judy said it’s in Knitters 32, not 37 — and 32 is not available for sale on their website. 🙁

  5. Hey, I’d like to get it too. Love the sweater. Maybe we could contact the designer?

  6. Hey, another question. What’s the story on Jamieson & Smith yarn as compared to Jamieson yarn? I think I spelled those correctly. Two different companies?

  7. Caroline F says:

    Paula – Jamieson and Jamieson&Smith are two different companies making shetland yarn. For me, the most important difference is that I can mail-order over the internet from J&S, for about $1.20 a hank plus shipping that never seems exorbitant, whereas Jamieson I have to get from a yarn shop at about $4 a hank. (My apologies to any YS owners who read this, but sometimes I have to look out for my bottom line!) I ordered yarn this summer from J&S to kit up for two sweaters and spent about $85 including shipping – it would have been almost $200 of yarn if I”d bought Jamieson. Just my 2cents…
