Everybody who tried it on yesterday looked great in it. I have no idea when I'll be able to start this (much less finish it) but it's the perfect little something for our 3 days of winter weather every year.

Love it, So cute!! The colors you got are great for you. LOL on your 3 days of winter :)

Oh Janet! It is beautiful. I know you will love making this. Did you buy the pattern or was it available with the yarns as a kit.

The colours you've selected are so beautiful, 3 days of winter is funny :)

I LOVE the colors you picked!
It's going to be spectacular.

I love your color selection. I look forward to seeing it!!

That's going to be really pretty. I love the colors you chose. I can't wait to see pictures of it in the future.

Ummmm Manos! That is going to be STUNNING =) And your color choices will compliment the style so well!

Ah! I need to learn patience don't I? I really like it and think the colors you chose are so pretty. I can't wait to see your version. :)

Ok, this is gorgeous. I may jump on your bandwagon and knit one, too. :)

Oh, that's quite striking!

Did you make the ruana yet? I've been wanting to make it as well. I ended up starting a cape from Oat Couture with the Manos colors I picked out and I really need to finish it.
