Solveig & Suzanna

Oh, yes. I succumbed. I've been thinking about it for over a year, and once Connie gave me a copy of Wendy Keele's Poems of Color a month ago, I couldn't resist. Such a wee little box arrived at my home via registered mail...
...filled with gorgeous possibilities. Since I need "practice", I've decided to not even tempt myself by opening up the package to run my fingers through the gorgeous 50 angora/50 merino yarn.

I will admit to petting the color card, though.

The box contained all necessary items (sans needles and markers) for the "Large Lace Collar" Jacket kit from Solveig in Sweden. Also known as the "Large Collar" in Poems of Color. The pattern has been translated by Susanna from Swedish to English, and both versions come with the kit.

What's the big deal? Well, the "Large Collar" pattern in Poems of Color has absolutely no yoke/collar patterning on the back like the original Bohus design.

Wowza, you did go ahead and get the kit! I cannot wait to see it knit up.

I take it the pattern does not include kids' sizes?

Oh my… that is one of my favorite Bohus sweaters; absolutely gorgeous. Very brave of you indeed to take the plunge with this one. :)
