just because the market has passed doesn't mean i'm here twiddling my thumbs :) oh no. my fingers and needles are doing all of the work ;) i've since dropped off 2 more shannon cowls, and here's a little sneak peek at another custom i'm working on.
i have knit with madelinetosh only once before. and i looooved every stitch. this is certainly no different.
this is madelinetosh merino light though... so i'm holding the yarn double. the yardage is great! and i just love the way it's knitting up. it's gorgeously soft, and the texture is heavenly.
seriously. it makes a big difference when you knit with the uber nice yarn...
the colour is french grey. i really really love it! it makes me think of old stone. so fitting!
this is the downton cowl by one of my besties shannon cook. (lots of you know her as luvinthemommyhood). it's a great pattern! very simple in construction, with beautiful results.
i'll finish it up today, and give it a nice blocking...i know this will be so well recieved. i would love to do a ton of these custom orders, even if just to have the madelinetosh through my fingers. xo
what are you up to today? anything lovely on the needles? are you moving into warmer accessories? xo
