postcards from the north

If you follow Norma's blog I guess you already know I was way up in Vermont having a visit with my adorable friend, Mr. Jefferies Norma.

For a quickie trip we really packed it in. There was, of course, knitting and red scarves, and photos, and blog talk, and laughter (lots).   Norma managed to find the most perfect fitting sample sweater evah at her LYS, where I met Joan. While I was distracted by, well, everything, Norma managed to acquire the yarn and buttons and a couple of new patterns too. I  tell ya, that woman can make decisions. The company, the crispy winter weather and the  great vibe at Kaleidoscope Yarns inspired: I managed to choose one skein of yarn to attempt a better fitting Felicity, myself.  If I ever do a post about knitting, I'll  show it.

Wowsa, if all the photos turned out that well, I can't wait to see them! There is great testimony in that one in my office as to how well my Peace Fleece sweater, which I've worn practically nonstop for three winters now, has held up. And, oh, that Mr. Jefferies does know how to steal the show, doesn't he?????

Go for the Whit's Knits "Simple Pleasures" hat--the pouf is totally under control on that design.

I hope Norma bought some of the colorway the sample sweater is in - Mr. Jefferies would look smashing in it.
