The traveling sweater....


I am stoked!!! I am going on a road trip with my Road King motorcycle, Pandora! My honey and I are taking our bikes (as some of you know I am totally into my bike) to Death Valley tomorrow to try to get some warmth and let the bikes stretch their wheels.

So we were all talking this afternoon about blogging (you are all going to be sooooo excited to see what's coming your way) and I have been holding onto some GREAT samples that are going to be given away one at a time here on this very blog.

Now you will have to work for them and we will be giving one away every month until they have found new loving homes and the first one is this beautiful single button cardigan worked up in Lorna's Laces Swirl Chunky.

The pattern is the Georgie Jacket and the color is Blackberry and it is soooooo scrumptious!!

This is how it's going to work, I am going to take pictures of this sweater in various places on my trip next week and I am going to post about it over the next 3-4 weeks AND you will need to pay close attention to the blog (all posts not just mine) because you will need to be able to answer a series of questions that will be in the very last post (I am not going to make them easy either hee hee) and the first person to email me all the right answers get's the sweater for their very own.

This is the first picture of The traveling sweater resting on my 2008 Road King Classic, Pandora. The name comes from Greek mythology and means giver of all and I would love to have a Road Queen name plate fashioned for my bike, but for now I am a princess who rides a Road King, ha ha! Pandora was supposed to be the first woman (according to Greek myth) and you can read a bit more about her on Wikipedia.

Did you know that Jimmy Beans Wool started in 2002 and thanks to all of you has grown into your LYS Online (and in Reno) store? We really appreciate all of our customers and I hope you have fun following The traveling sweater and seeing all the new stuff coming your way on our blog. Thanks for reading and good luck!

Ok so I wonder if there is anything in this post that you may want to remember???

As always happy knitting and crocheting!

Jeanne
