Julia with collar!

Here is Julia "again". It is great. I knitted a collar I can add on, After a short walk between two yarnshops (hey, best way to spend a saturday shopping day!) I was HOT, and with a swift move, it was gone again. Here you can see how loose it is, but I guess big belly doesn't make it nicer (this is one out of 8 photos, where I didn't look like 7 months...) I still belive Im like the dog who wants puppies so bad she is faking it "sken-dräktig", sorry, untranslateable. Anyhow
I got another Kid-silk Haze at Wincent, and stocked up on some more Yorkshire Tweed to my fairilse. Shop was crowded. I also bought a ticket to see the man himself 12 december for a lecture... Kaffe Fasset. But I'm a bit unsure here given Mia's encounter. Well, it is a long time to the 12th of December. A Paris shopping spree planned around 1-4th of December. (Yarnshops anyone? Paris central?) Anyhow, then the parking ended up just next to Nina and Nysta (not the first time). And, Some more of that Noro below and 2 other hanks with some wooden needles find its way. And - I gave up on VK and bought that one and Knitsimple. VK was great! Wow, white looks so fresh. I just want to knit it ALL!

Very clever idea with the removable collar. I steal that one:) I am freezing a lot, it is a new experience for me. Julia looks great, it is better that the ribbing is too loose than too tight.
Your Noros are fantastic! There is no better colour terapy than Noro. Take care.

I LOVE it with the collar, and what a great idea!
yarn shops in Paris (yippy!)- my two favorites:
1.La Drogurie (!!!)
2. the yarn shop at Le Bon Marché
also must visit the new museum in Paris, Musee du Quai Branly, for non-western art

Le Bon Marche has it all, plus other goodies i.e. perfume, shoes, scarves etc.. and a great food hall acroos the street(Mariage Freres tea--wow). I have some lipstick pink Noro mohair that I got in Tokyo last spring--40 gms=84 meters. Everything else is in Japanese. I'll take a pic of it and let me know if you'd like some--I have 3 skeins. Sorry about Julia--cotton is rotten for ribbing.:(

Julia looks great and the colour is so nice. Lucky you, going to Paris. This time of the year will be lovely.

Sigrid, One more thing; I have visited Paris only once many years ago. We went to Paris in december to look at sailingboats on a fair in La Defence. Actually there is boatshow in La Porte de Versailles 2-11 december 2006. http://www.salonnautiqueparis.com/

Julia är inte en av mina favoriter, men med krage, vilken skillnad!
Ha det så skönt i Paris, jag var där förra våren med mamma och systrar, inget garnshoppande alls, tyvärr, däremot härliga promenader.
