So, the week before Thanksgiving Break was a little nutty, but I managed to still get the Rhiannon Hooded Cowl pattern rolling AND conquer the papers and projects due before the mid-semester holiday.
Super-bulky knit headband! I confess I have been drooling over mega big knitting and wanting to make something rad and chunky, so that’s what I did, using this amazing free knitting pattern from Margo Knits.
I love the oversize style mixed with the simple, pretty cable lines. It sort of reminds me of Swedish Christmas bread or Challah bread, but for your head.
I love this yarn so much I might never do anything with it except for pet it. Having the colors and texture pre-planned as opposed to experimentally cobbling whatever wool was at hand really worked out 😉
4 oz of solid color persimmon merino blend plied against 4 oz of variegated (blue,brown,yellow,orange) BFL blend from the LYS. These are the exact colors I saw all around IU and Bloomington during the long, mild October and early November we had here.
A mild autumn that’s come to an end! Freezing and snow are at hand for this weekend, and I’m planning a break that is crammed full of as much yarn and hearty vegetarian fare as I can manage. Off to spin all the wool and eat all the gourds!
