Tess's yarns are gorgeous and so luxurious. Those reds are stunning - do you have a plan for them?

I took a demo tour of the Sweater Wizard software, but didn't see the Garment Designer. Tempting. Some sort of knitting software is definitely on my wish list now!

Jen,
I don't have your email address, just Wool & Co.'s blog address, so I'll respond here.

I went back and bought a pattern from Tess for a cabled tank top - but I may just make something in Sweater Wizard or something from "Perfectly Brilliant Knits", which has a lot of ribbon tanks. The color is almost a coppery-red, one of my favorites!

Garment Designer was created by Susan Lazear and info is available on her web site, www.cochenille.com. I really liked meeting her and she gave a great demo for the product.

Talk to you soon!
Robin
