I love the blue toes!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

I love these! I really like your color choices, the stitch pattern is great, and any name that starts with Gentleman's Fancy is all right by me.

Great texture and use of two colors.  I purchased this book the other day from Knitpicks annual 40% off sale.  I began a new blog of my own and I will be working on my blogging skills.  Hopefully I will find the time needed to post.  http://somersetknits.blogspot.com/
