Winnings!

Remember a little while ago when I said I'd won a drawing on Planet Purl for 16 balls of yarn? It came today, and I'm so thrilled with it! The colour is perfect and it feel divine. It will make a lovely short sleeve top once I find a nice pattern I like.

The yarn is 'Linarte' by Lana Grossa (from Italy)...40% Rayon, 30% Cotton, 20% Linen, and 10% Polyamide and calls for either 4 or 4.5 needles. I will have to research to see if that's in mm, but I expect it is. Unfortunately the band doesn't have the universal # that would help to narrow down the pattern choices.

I must remind you though, that my "speedy" knitting won't result in a completed sweater for at least three years, so don't hold your breath waiting to see it!
Thank you Planet Purl...you rock!!

When I saw the pic, I said "woo" out loud - it looks lovely. Never mind about the time it may take to knit, we'll wait...we'll wait...
