Day 3...or 4 & 5 If You're Counting...

Further adventures of a winter's pastime.... Jeanne sweater pattern from Debbie Bliss' Winter Essentials
knitted with Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed
85% Wool, 15: Angora
The picture doesn't do it justice, it's a beautiful heather green
Last year for my birthday Jessi gave me this beautiful hand painted yarn from Shaefer, it's 60% merino wool superwash, 25% mohair and 15% nylon. It was a huge skein so I knitted a cowl out of it and now I'm working on the Spring Forward Socks pattern by Knitty. I LOVE this pattern, it's lace, but easy, easy, easy to follow. One sock down, 1 half finished.




Another cowl, I couldn't resist Manos' silk blend yarn the last time I was in the yarn store! This is Crofter's Cowl from Ravelry, a free download.
And that's all folks.....
