Rose Red

I think I have that same colourway of Jitterbug and have Conwy in my queue...I think you are right - a marriage made in heaven!


I'm getting all misty here . . .

First off: Conwy are among my favorite socks, and yours in that color are going to be gorgeous.

Second, I recently recalled How Green Was My Valley as one of my favorite books, I remember crying when coming to the end, mostly because it was over. I was young when I read it, maybe about the same age you were, and it was the first time that I could put the sadness together with not only the story line, but the actual finishing of that story for me. I wanted it to continue and follow me through my days. Thinking of it so much in the last couple of days, I may be pulling it out to read again soon.


That is a beautiful color, and I can't wait to see what you knit with it!


That yarn and pattern are the perfect combination - they are just beautiful, my mother is half welsh and at the turn of the century half the welsh ancestry went out to NZ (two sisters) and the two boys went to Pittsburgh - who knows maybe the ancestors crossed paths or shipping lanes


You're lucky to be able to go that far back in your family history. I now call my research Roadblocks To Geneology because that's all I seem to get!
What a lush colour for those socks.
