We've had some rainy, cold, windy weather here and I've got handknits on the brain. I mostly concentrated on sewing during the summer but with the leaves turning, the mercury plummeting, and Christmas 62 days away, I find myself poring over patterns and hankering for hanks.
I visited The Needle Emporium in Ancaster to pick up some new yarns. The shop is like a candy store, so jam-packed with yarn I felt giddy. Once I managed to compose myself, I bought some lovely autumnal yarns.
First up, this delicate Silky Alpaca Lace by Classic Elite Yarns (70% alpaca, 30% silk).
Good old Cascade 220 The Heathers (100% wool) will combine with some 220 already in my stash to become a new pair of mitts for me.
I hope to design a cowl using this super bulky Big Wool by Rowan (100% merino wool).
Bought any new yarn lately? What projects have you got lined up?
