Colors of the day

Today was a colorful day. The nice people at We Love Colors sent me some fabulous goodies (!), Sam took me to the craft store for some ribbons and barrettes, and I searched for a knitting pattern to make a sweater just like Keira Knightly wore in this picture for The Edge of Love. I've actually been looking for a pattern to copy that sweater for months, and today I finally found one! this is about as close as one can get to what she's wearing, and I even have the perfect yarn in mind, in the perfect color (Turmeric, down at the bottom), but of course, the color is not available until August. Deja vu. Last fall I made this cardigan, which happens to be in the same film, and it's the same color. So I was going to buy the turmeric colored yarn, but it was not available for another few months. Am I not meant to have a mustard colored cardigan?
Anyway, I hope everyone has a nice weekend planned, for us here in the states we get a three day weekend! That is if you work a normal job or go to school. So in my case, just another weekend ;)

I know these wools are from over here in Scotland but they may be the right colour

the second one is direct from the isle of harris and the wool is around £4 (6 dollars) so its maybe a bit more pricey.

good luck with the cardis they look lovely:)

Lovely goodies! I just spent all day making charm bracelets. Waaaaaay to much fun! Now everyone wants one *grin*
I still have not caught up with any of my knitting projects. The only thing I have done was a scarf for charity. I am such a slacker!

The sweater is so beautiful and the yarn you've chosen is perfect.

Have a great weekend! Luckily Monday is a bankholiday here in the UK as well and it looks like sunshine to boot :-)

Can't wait to see how you work the Welovecolors nylon anklets into your outfits! And the sweater should be adorable on you.
