Many years ago I was fortunate to meet and become good friends with pattern designer, Anne Podlesak. We actually got to know each other through our mutual love of angora rabbits. Anne came to visit here one day and went home with one of my favorite little fuzzy ones and a friendship was formed. It was Anne who introduced me to the wide world of blogging all those years ago and once I discovered blogging, I was hooked! Many of my dearest and closest friends today are those who I have come to know through blogging.
Over the years Anne and I have worked on a number of projects together. Anne is amazingly talented both as a designer and a dyer, so when she emailed me about an ebook that she was working on and I looked at her inspiration pinterst board, I was intriqued with what she was imagining for this sweater. I sent a bundle of my Sporty yarn to her in the Midas Touch colorway and then didn't think much about it for a spell, until I got an early glimse of Rapunzel...I swooned.... I LOVE it!!
I am an Irish girl, so when I see those celtic cables I always smile. This sweater is so beautiful. It also makes me smile when I see my yarn displayed in such a beautiful work of art. Thank you Anne!
Rapunzel is part of Anne's ebook Legendary Knits. Do yourself a favor and go take a peek. So many lovely patterns!
