It's beautiful! I don't know that I can afford the same yarn but is the pattern sold separately? Thank you for your comment on my blog.

Beautiful.
I took a workshop with Candace a few years ago and she is just amazing.
We have a Saratoga here too, in New York, and for one moment I thought, Oh man! She was so close to where I live...

Enjoy the cardi.

PS and I always get a kick out of your pups. They are so sweet.
