Paloma - pattern Babycocktails, yarn LionBrand Wool-Spun
Love the fit, the colour, the warmth. Easy to style, cozy to wear. Perfect.
Four Seasons - pattern Never Not Knitting, yarn Briggs and Little Regal
Twin Leaf Loop - pattern Never Not Knitting, yarn Diamond Luxury Baby Alpaca
Love the yarn, easy pattern, cozy cowl. I find alpaca a bit itchy but not unwearable. Haven't knit with pure alpaca before. I knit two of these this year, but the second is from different yarn and has a denser feel.
Sitka Cowl - pattern Tin Can Knits, yarn Cornelia Hamilton Yarns Heaven's Hand Classic Wool
I 'hacked' this hat to make a cowl. Love the tree images, but the twisted stitches were very hard on my hand joints. Would love to knit the hat and mitts as a set but may not be able to manage the pattern.
#7 Fair Isle Hat - pattern Vogue Knitting Fall 2016, yarn various DK weights from stash, mostly Patons Superwash DK, Loyal DK
I knit mitts, hats, cowls, a pullover poncho for a friend, and finished several things I'd started well before 2016. Still several WIPs on the go as I head into 2017, but I'm quite happy with all of the knitting I've done this year. I tried new techniques from complex (mosaic knitting) to simple (making a tassel). I've knit a mystery project and 'hacked' a pattern. I've knit a lot from stash, but also purchased yarns with projects in mind. I have lots planned for 2017 - some already shared in my post about Botanical Knits, others still in the works. Looking forward to another productive and creative year!
