Gosh, I wish every winter day could be like this! Warm, a little rainy and very green. We’ll just give Mother Nature a mulligan and pretend last week never happened. It hasn’t snowed yet. We’ll give her a do-over.
Remember a while back I was looking into what could be done with a single skein of sock yarn with “One Little Skein”? Well, here’s my contribution, “Wind in the Wheat”. It’s a simple, quick cowl with a lacy pattern. It’s fun to knit with self-striping yarn but would be equally pretty in a solid or tonal. I find myself wearing this a lot because, though it’s warm and snuggly under my coat, it’s light enough that I can wear it indoors through the day. I can add a little color to all my black-gray-and-beiges without feeling all bundled up. Wind in the Wheat works up quick enough to be a great last-minute knitted giftie too.
The sample is worked in Mary Maxim’s A Step Above Sock Yarn, 100% superwash wool, which, if you recall was another little experiment of mine 🙂 I’ll be wanting to knit another as a sample for the shop and I’m thinking ’bout this little gem that’s been tempting me lately. This is from Lana Grossa, Magico II Degrade. Love those aquas!
