Hmmm... I'm a big fan of warm, soft greys. I really like the tweedy loveliness of your hand-dyed yarn.

I'm happy for you that you are pleased with your silky wool sweater. I know you won't mind when I tell you that it's not my cup of tea. But then again, perhaps I just need to see the whole thing together to get it. :-)


Your swatches all look so pretty altogether with all the different patterns and colours.

I really like your silky wool sweater and can't wait to see how the cables on the front are going to look!


That yarn is gorgeous!! I like the sweater too, what color is that?


I like the tweedy yarn. I'm trying to be more right-brain and came up with -- Cobblestones Sweater. Whew! I think I hurt my brain, there.


I love that yarn! It's so pretty! I want that (well, something like it) for that t-shirt I want to make. I'll have to remember to write down "steal that idea from Maia" on my to do list.


I love the tweedy gray, gray is a favorite of mine. Talk about no memeory -yikes! But a rib should help it keep enough shape to avoid slipping down his heel (don't ya haye that?)


OH! That gray tweed is gorgeous! Your hubby is gonna love those socks!


Well it doesn't look like I'm the first to say it, but yeah, that is such a gorgeous dye job!


Maia...the sweater pattern is awesome! Will you submit it for publication? I have to admit, I love cables, any kind on anything. I can't wait to see it finished in all it's glory.



That is amazing yarn. I can't believe the differnce in dye take-up. I would have thought, lay person that I am, it was two strands, dyed separately and _then_ plied. Blow my mind.
