Channeling Elizabeth: Recreating a Family Heirloom

Channeling Elizabeth: Recreating a Family Heirloom
The title is a link to the wonderful story in Twist Collective magazine of the re-creation of a beautiful sweater, of unpublished design, by Elizabeth Zimmermann. There's a bit more here, at Brooklyn Tweed. But Schoolhouse Press *is* publishing the design, and found a supply of the original yarn. Today I acted impulsively and ordered the kit! I don't usually buy yarn impulsively. I plan. I wait -- I do a lot of waiting. I ponder. But today, I just jumped. There's a limited supply of the original yarn. It wasn't expensive. And, it's headed my way. Hurray!
