Christmas in July

Happiness is bundles of yarn, delivered right to your doorstep. It really feels like Christmas, even if I did have to pay...

With the arrival of this morning's mail, I became the proud possessor of 5 cones (yes, CONES!!) of traditional 5-ply Guernsey wool from Frangipani in the UK.

We're looking at another His & Hers project here, involving a pair of designs from Alice Starmore's Fishermen's Sweaters book. The deep burgundy colorway is called "Damson" and will become Eriskay for me. The lovely gray-green is called "Cedar" and will become Stornoway for him.

And so the Great Guernsey Adventure begins. I will be swatching this afternoon...
