    1. Kristen, I'm hoping to do justice to this pattern because I love it. The Briar colorway should go well with my hair. Not because my hair is tinged with purple but rather it's gone to white.
      Thanks for visiting
      hugs

  10. That colour is lovely! And it will look so good as the Intagliata Henley. I had a look at the book after you posted about it - Connie has come through with some very lovely patterns!
