Woollies Weather

The last few weeks has had this un-natural warmth to them for the time of year but that has all changed now. Tonight when I got out from teaching my crochet class in Tinahely I had to scrape the ice off the windscreen. Proper cold weather for woollies, yay!

A few weeks ago I knit up this cosy cowl in Schoppel Wolle Pur Wool. It’s soft and warm and dense and I love the colour and it’s perfect for the cold weather. I made it with the view to having it on under my winter coat and not have the hassle of trailing scarf tails as they always get in the way for me when I’m scraping the windscreen. Proper cowl for proper cold weather in woollies, yay!

Note: Pattern to follow.

    Yay! I heard about it at the YR but it wasn’t there to be admired. Good to see this at last. Lovely job.

    Thank you Monika, the yarn does all the work here! It’s a lovely yarn!

    Nic, ta’ luv. Better get the pattern done and a sample knit, other than the one that I wear.
