Some Assembly Required

When I first got my copy of  Tudor Roses by Alice and Jade Starmore, I spent weeks just reading it and looking at the pictures.  I mentally knitted several designs before deciding on "Margaret Beaufort."  Don't tell the authors, but I bought some lovely, yet affordable acrylic (Alice just fainted) yarn--Lion Brand's Heartland.  It's soft and the blended colors are nice.  And if I really love this sweater I will go on some day to knit it in authentic wool from islands off the Scottish coast like I am supposed to do.

Having posted this picture, I will now feel some pressure to get to the blocking and sewing.  Not today, but soon.  I will keep y'all posted!
