SHHHHHHH...they are finally sleeping

Oh, I have a minute to myself....the boys are sick and I am a little irritable from sleep deprivation. I can't wait till my DH comes home!
I just had to start a major project, I couldn't take it anymore! The ten balls of Rowan Calmer have been calling out to me, so I started "Loll".

Can I just say that I love Rowan Calmer. I used it once before for a hat....but this sweater...man do I love this yarn. The feel, the drape, the weight, the fibers...oh yeah baby. No wonder it comes at such a high price.
The cardigan has the most interesting edge...that takes forever to knit...but look at this

Isn't it just beautiful! I am going to love this cardigan!

Wow! Love that texture on the bobbles! That looks so cool.
How do you like working with the Calmer? I have heard mixed reviews on it...

Hope your boys (and you) feel better soon.

Lolly

Oooooh. If I were to wear that, I know I would be touching my bobbles all the time. It would be a whole sensory experience just getting dressed in the morning. :)

So cool! From the picture you posted previously, I just thought the edge was in seed stitch or something. Those bobble-y things are sweet!
