Oregon in the autumn colorway is done! It was a fun fair isle knit designed by Alice Starmore and recently re-published in Vogue Magazine.







In addition to this beautiful knit, there is a LOT of the Virtual Yarn left over. I bought the kit from Junie, a good online friend. It was for the large size but I made the medium sweater as a crew neck cardigan, not even as a V neck. There would have been ample yarn for the large size. Wonder what I'll do with the left overs?

Anne--your sweater is beyond beautiful. The sight of it makes me want to drop every WIP and WIM and make one just like it. The colors are glorious. Thank you for sharing.

Dear Anne:

I the Oregon is beautiful. I know I left a comment here, but don't see it - so I will do it over. I would have done the collar treatment exactly the way you did. Perfect.Hope you took notes. I plan to do the green Oregon that way.

I am glad and proud that you took that kit and really did a terrific job. I got my color card today. Looked over all the colors and Anne, it is lovely yarn. Thanks for sending the card.

hugs & congratulations
junie
