Although I don't do much seasonal knitting ( aka christmas knitting ), there has been a small amount going on. A quick visit to fivemoons studio last week yielded a beautiful merino yarn. A pattern was soon drafted, and then knitted up.
Barley was co-opted as model. This was the result....The Christmas Cabled Cowl. The yarn is gorgeous....soft, squishy, very touchable ( i.e. suitable for those who react to wool by itching! )
It has been wrapped and given. I hope my friend likes it!
