Bohus service announcement:
Solvig, a fabulous dyer and supplier of Bohus kits from Sweden, sent an email announcement yesterday. She now has Wild Apple kits available! With shipping, they're 1250 Sek. (divide by approx. 7 for US currency equivalent). Each kit comes with original Bohus Museum instructions translated by Susanna into English. If you're interested in ordering one, email Solvig directly.
Tiny Gauge Warning: these kits have *gorgeous* fingering weight angora/merino wool and are knit generally 2-2.5mm needles. Designs published in Poems of Color use a much larger gauge and DK weight yarns. If you would rather follow these patterns, the book recommends kits from Kimmet Croft Yarns-Fairy Haire.
The picture above is a mystery. I found the image online here: http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j47/lv2knit/WildApplessweater2.jpg If you know who lv2knit is, please let me know. From the image above, clearly the sweater was entered into the Minnesota State Fair. (Ingebretsen's gave it away!) I've seen one of the Rainey Sisters wearing a sweater just like this one when the Yarn Harlot came to visit Minnesota just a few months ago.
disclaimer: I am not ordering one of the kits. The Large Lace Collar must be completed first!
