As I knit these last few rows on the neck edging of the fiery bolero, I chanted: Please let me have enough yarn...please let me have enough yarn...

...AND I DID! Can I get a "Woot! Woot!"?

By the time we were driving over the bridge into Blois (man, how I love this city) I was wearing the bolero over my white tank. Woot woot!         Yep. Started something new. Like, TOTALLY startitis, dude. ...and this is what I'm knitting! (Another niece was born while we were in Blois! My siblings are lucky to have a knitter in the fam, don't you think?) The castle peeking in the top center background is the Royal Castle at Blois, by the way.   Psst...the castle in the distance (to the left) is the Royal Castle at Amboise. Here is a closer shot for you. (Pardon my windshield.)   Pretty view of La Loire. (The castle at Chaumont is to the right.)     Why, YES! I went bonkers with startistis and began another project. (A vest for my pops.) Awwwwwwwwwwwwww! What's that? You wanna zoom in? Oh, alright.       Just look at those intarsia stripes. I think I used about 6 bobbins. ON EACH END. 6 for each sleeve, which means 12 bobbins for working the stripes on the sleeves. Sometimes I felt like I had a windchime in my hands. No, your eyes do not deceive you.... ...that is a water tank that looks like a tower of a castle. Vive La Loire! And vive all those freaking bobbins!
