In August 2008, I subscribed to the Seasons Collection (Summer) not really realizing until later that Sundara Yarn is one of the most sought-after in the knitting world. It’s taken me all this time to actually knit with it and now there’s no turning back.
This colourway is from the third mailing of the club. It’s called Aurora Borealis and has the deepest shades of purple. The pattern is Spring Forward from Knitty Summer 2008.

Here’s a peek at Jackie’s almost-finished FLS in Malabrigo Worsted Little Lovely. It looks amazing in person.
I bought my ball winder at the request of Rain and Caroline. Here are the ladies having fun with Caroline’s skein of natural alpaca. Thanks to Yanti lending us her very light and portable swift, the task went on swiftly by.
The next meeting is probably on the day that I leave for Manila (May 22nd), but no worries I get to meet them all as I have Knit Pro needles arriving which needs to be sorted and delivered to those who ordered them.
