Some Patterns Arrive

After an exhaustive search...

Well, ok, I sent my husband to Brooklyn Tweed and had him pick the sweater he wanted. It seemed the simplest method - especially since I knew he wasn't too excited about any of the patterns I already had. To my great delight, he picked Elizabeth Zimmerman's Saddle Shoulder Aran Cardigan, which I promptly ordered from Schoolhouse Press. I will be using the Kathmandu Aran Tweed I picked up a month or so ago....just as soon as the weather is more conducive to knitting such a cold-weather beast. As I thought it rather silly to pay so much for shipping on a $1 pattern, I also ordered another rare German lace book. I LOVE rare German lace books, and this one is a thriller. I think I may have been drooling when I looked through it for the first time.
Speaking of drooling, I also finally ordered a few patterns from Joan McGowan-Michael of White Lies Designs.
Yes, I let my husband pick out one of the patterns.

No, I will not show you the second and third patterns. You won't be seeing the finished knits, either.
