Söderängskrage

My very first finished knit of 2014 was completed on January 1st. Winter this year is bleak and dreary indeed, and the snow we had in early December is long since gone. The need for warm woolens is still great, though.

This bright and lovely cowl was designed by my good friend Erika Åberg and is available from her and Eva Trotzig’s beautiful book Varmt och stickat. Please visit Erika’s blog Crafts by Wynja.

My left arm really looks abnormally long in this photo. I assure you, it’s the angle!

I think it fits best when twisted twice

Looks great with my coat, I think

Despite my wierd look, I am very happy with this cowl!

So, what’s next? Well, I’m still trying to knit from my stash, which is strangely pleasing. I have no cravings to buy more yarn, I love to look at and touch (and smell!) the yarn in my stash and let it inspire me.

I’ve decided to consider my needs more, and a really do need more cardigans knit from good quality wool, so I’ve decided to revisit the textured cardigan knit from estonian wool I begun in February of 2012, but never finished. Back and both fronts are finished, however, and about half of the first sleeve, which means that it shouldn’t take me too long to complete this project. I’ll let you know how it’s progressing.

In the meantime, happy knitting!
