so, as a belated birthday present to myself i ordered the palette yarn sampler from knitpicks. it came yesterday, and just LOOK at it!
i'm not nearly ambitious enough to try the fair isle cardi yet (although i have been itching to knit fair isle), so i'm not sure what i will do with it. so for now i'll just look at it (without drooling on it!), and wait until the perfect project comes to me.
