Did you get a quebracho without any green? I've never seen it that colour before.

Wow what gorgeous knitting Bec!
Vineyards is lovely :D Actually they all are....
And Rachel I love that pattern - it looks amazing!! How long did it take you?? Would love to make DD something like that...but don't know if I'd have the patience. It must take loads of wool too!

My Rav notes said it took 2 weeks, but I did knit a few hats in that time as well. Size 6 took nearly 6 skeins of wool. This was an order, and I have to knit another size 6 and a size 10 in the next six weeks too.

if your making it for your own kids its still only $60 or so for the materials, which for a garment of that size/beauty/warmth etc is still awsome!!!

Grenada 4ply knitted up. Its MUCH more verigated than I expected. The bottom is knitted in the round, and the top is knitted flat.
