I loved making every one of these. The varieties of yarn were all so different, yet all quite perfect.
To Erica of Colorshift Yarn - your Bridges of color were such an inspiration to me, thank you, thank you!
To Kate - Thank You for letting me test your new Damsel. It is a winner in every way, and just begged to have eyelets, for which I’m grateful.
Dana - This was my first experience with your Touring DK, which was pure squishy delight. Your colors are just beautiful. Thank you.
And Sarah. You know how much I adore Bugga after it’s been in your hands.
Haley Parker, my darling daughter and knitter, your leftover sock yarn version has rarely left my shoulders since it came off of your needles. You are just the best in so many ways.
Also thanks to myriad testers who have helped me to make this one of my favorite pattern writing experiences.
I just love this work…
