Just thought I would take a minute to introduce myself to you
Starmore knitters. Alice Starmore is my favorite designer and St.
Brigid is a sweater I've had on my list to do. I just love it. I
am hoping that a few of you are knitting it right now and can help
me along my Brigid experience. Is there anyone out there who wants
to knit it but hasn't started yet? I would like to start this in
What yarns have you all used to replace the Scottish Heather? Do
you think Elann's Peruvian Highland would work? Or, is that too
heavy. I am in a quandry about how to replace the discontinued yarn
in this book. Does anyone have any ideas?
I made a button for my blog and went ahead and added it to the Photo
section in case anyone else would like to use it.
I'm looking forward to this group!

- Oh, Vicki...............your St. Brigid is GORGEOUS! Now I am really excited about knitting it. I'm encouraged that you used Cascade 220. I have some in my stash, Amethyst I believe. The color is not exactly what I would have envisioned as my St. Brigid but, if I can use of stash, it works for me.I've added your blog button to my blog.Thanks.......glad to know you will be lurking around to help :-)

- Hi Joanna,Have you checked out your local library? I have borrowed Aran Knits from mine too many times to even count. I have put in a request for an inter-library loan for Tudor Roses and am waiting for it. I really hope these books come back into print. When I homeschooled my girls (they are now in college) I spent fortunes on out-of-print children's books and they just recently have been republished...so, I'm hopeful that these will be as well!Rebecca

That is beautifully knitted, and I love the colours too! Well done

I’m bowing my head in shame. I should have started St. Brigid a long time ago. I hummed and harred about what yarn to use and in the end settled for Jamiesons Soft (I believe aka Scottish heather). However, Cascade 220 is now available in the UK and my resolve is weakening. I may do what Rebecca is thinking about and knit 2 in the different yarns. September is sounding good.
