Just over 2 years ago, Linda contacted me on Ravelry and asked if I'd like to be a knitting buddy with her for the purpose of finishing our Mary Tudor cardigans. It took some convincing, but I finally agreed, and over a period of about six months we kept in touch and compared notes on our progress, helping to keep each other motivated.
She got in touch again about a month ago and asked if I'd be up for another go. Since I had all the yarn for Queen Anne's Lace, and only lacked the motivation, I said yes! This was just before I went to Germany, so I told her that I'd be starting my project on June 1. And here we are!
Last night I started getting my supplies ready. Here's my yarn, which is mostly Alice Starmore Scottish Campion:
Would you like a closer look? Here you go:
And here's the receipt from when I bought it:
Hmmm. July 2001. Do you think it's about time I knit up this sweater?!
I made a copy of my pattern:
And then made a legend of the symbols and colors of the yarns:
Linda is going to be making Katherine of Aragon from the book Tudor Roses.
Today I just need to wind skeins of the four colors used in the ribbing, and then I can cast on for my second knitting adventure with Linda!
