And suddenly it's nearly the end of January, and so much knitting completed but undocumented. Not that you have to document knitting. In fact, it'd probably be a sign of some personality disorder if you did. Like alphabetising your CD collection. Altho' there are days that doesn't seem such a bad idea.
I've wandered off the point, so here's a little cardigan, inspired by Arlene's garter stitch scarves, made from Wendy Roam. It's a messed-about-with pattern from an old magazine but you could use almost any simple 4ply pattern and still get a fabulous effect with this lovely wool. Takes just one ball, so costs £7.50, plus a button from your mum's button box. Most of us have one of those, right?

How's your knitting mojo? Up and running? Slumped in a post-Christmas depression? I've completed a couple of small projects since the holiday: a roll brim hat for my sister in the West Yorkshire Spinners BFL Print double knitting, and also the cowl below, which is a newer version, knitted in the round, of the simple cowl pattern I posted recently. Knitted in two different vaiegated colourways of Adriafil Mistero, it's very snuggly. It was meant to be a shop sample but I fear it might end up being worn to Leeds for shopping on Sunday. Am even toying with the idea of bravely putting it (and a few other simple things) on ravelry as a free pattern, especially now I've realised that creating a pattern pdf, involves no more than clicking on 'Save as PDF'. Who knew it was that simple?
