Birthday Yarn

This here is my birthday yarn...

Juniper (43) Posted by Picasa

Manos del Uruguay, 100% wool, color 43 (Juniper). Beutiful, isn't it? The picture is from the Earth Guild website. Not really sure, just did a google for Manos. I saw the yarn at Back Door Beads...I am not sure if I can describe it...a wall of color. One whole wall, just covered with hanging hangs of Manos was beutiful, breathtaking...

So, I picked a color that I thought was nice (hard to do. So many colors...), and would look good on me. ANd I spread the word. I told everyone in my family, get me this for my birthday. This is what I want. Everyone get me at least one hank (currently on sale through October for 40% off at BDB), and then I will hopefully have enough where I can knit me a sweater.

I have never knit anything for myself. Or at least nothing that I have kept. I an very excited about this. If I get enough, I would really like a sweater jacket. Something long, down to my mid-calf, or better yet, ankles. Open in frount, with buttons... I have this picture of me wearing this jacket, sophisticated and warm, all thouse around me are jelous of my jacket and my skill in knitting it.

Now, if I could just find a pattern...If anyone has a good jacket pattern, point me in the direction. SOmething that will do this lovely yarn justice.

Ah ha! You are getting your birthday presents early because we're still the Libra sign! Is your birthday late October or November? I also noticed that you were born in the year of the Dog. So was I! The Manos is absolutely gorgeous--it's such a lovely color. And regarding a jacket pattern? A friend knit a coat. If I can get the pattern details from her, I'll send you an email.
