Found it!

Not in the bedroom, last known location, but on a dining chair. Who knows? At any rate, it's safe and sound.

Isn't that a pretty yarn? It feels just right after its wash and block, too, so now all want to do before starting is to get my sister to measure her favorite sweater around to see if the new one will work. . . no, she says she is a measuring failure. I'll ask her to bring one over and I'll measure it.

Thank you for the opinions about the Pearl Buck sleeves. I think maybe since my torso is actually on the long side, my arms also seem long. I also just like 3/4 length sleeves. So knitting them down in the round isn't going to hurt me -- thank goodness for more yarn -- and I'll like it more.

Wow, you are on a roll, both on posting and knitting. I love the Pearl Buck jacket -- great color too. I am a big fan of shorter sleeves.

Are you planning to "feminize" the Cobblestone? I saw a blog with a feminized version some time ago, and I really wanted to ask for the details. It looked great. Looking forward to seeing yours!

Isn't it funny how inanimate objects grow legs and move around the house when your back is turned?

I love the Felted Wool! The color and tweediness (technical term) will make a lovely Cobblestone.

The color is fabulous.

My children spend most of their days taking things from where they belong and depositing them in unexpected (and sometimes downright bizarre) places. I figure it keeps life from getting too easy.

Glad you found the hiding swatch- was afraid the cat might I eaten it (my little dope would; she's ga-ga over felted wool)
Love the color- just the thing to make you look warm & cozy when it turns cool- what is the yarn?
