cozy cashmere

I knit up this little cowl ages ago and never blogged it! I’ve been terribly remiss in my FO shoots. This one is just single round stripes in some leftovers of DK weight cashmere, mostly Handmaiden 4ply. It was a pleasure to knit up, and super warm.

A little print pattern will be available at lettuce knit starting this weekend – we have lots of Handmaiden 4-ply cashmere too!

P.S. Since several people have asked about the ornaments – the sweaters are based on the pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, and the little Santa hat and stocking are my own. I’ll put up a wee pattern for them this weekend!

I’ve been working away on a bunch of wee things for the holidays.

But it’s not all tiny sweaters around here! While looking for scrap yarns to knit them with, I came across a handspun sweater I started ages ago. I’ve decided to pick it back up rather than ripping it, and it’s very pleasing indeed.
