Freedom Spirit from Twilleys of Stamford

We received Freedom Spirit about 2 weeks ago, and it is a new favorite of mine. It's 100% wool, and sportweight, and it is just beautiful. I made a beret for the shop (book #455), and I just loved knitting with it.
Very soft! The pattern support is really great too - there are a number of sweaters I'd like to make in each of the two pattern booklets that go with this yarn.
Here are some of the items in book #455... A great close fitting vest that can be done in two lengths:
A nice v-neck cargidan with ruffled sleeves:
A sweet v-neck sweater with a tie at the waist:
A cardigan with two length options:
A wrap sweater:
A fun bolero with a neat ribbed collar:
In book #456, a cute T-neck sweater with a cable up the front:
A really pretty scarf and set of fingerless mitts:
Of course there are more, with a total of 14-15 patterns in each book.

Tomorrow is dye-day. We have several customers waiting for more of our custom dyed wools for rug hooking. This morning I organized everything in the kitchen so I can start tomorrow at 8am. At least the cooler weather is back! It's hard to stand in a sweltering hot kitchen all day when it's hot out!
