Swatching for Shetland

Happy Easter everyone! The weather here is absolutely beautiful. I think we're going to go for walk in the woods this afternoon, and perhaps go to see The Grand Budapest Hotel later.

In the meantime, I'm playing with my new wooden toy, getting some lovely Loft ready for my Bressay Dress. Several of us lucky Shetland trip goers have planned to knit the dress for the tour (see Lori's beautiful version here). I'm sure it will make for some funny group photos!

I've organized a little Bressay KAL if anyone's interested in joining (you don't need to be an "ltp" (lucky trip person) to join.

I hope the Easter bunny brings you lots of lovely treats!




Happy Easter sweet Nicole! It's always so lovely here at your blog :)

Lovely as always, and these are *so* your colors ! Gorgeous ! oxox



The Shetland trip sounds amazing! Lucky you, Nicole.

I just saw The Grand Budapest Hotel and quite enjoyed it -- not my favorite Wes Anderson movie, but still terrific. He's so wonderful with visuals.



Your dress is going to be so beautiful!

that dress looks like a fun project for the trip. You truly are a lucky trip person. xx



Looking forward to seeing your dress, it is a beautiful pattern. I followed your link and saw Lori wearing here gorgeous dress. You must be so excited about the trip.
I bet it is really inspiring seeing the island and all that wool!
