Here's a project that I've been working away at quietly:
Favourite Things Cowl by Jill McGee, which is more of a recipe than a pattern. It's a stash-busting project written for worsted weight, but it could easily be scaled up or down for different weights. Jill does warn that it is heavy when knit up in worsted weight, but I figure that will be OK in a cold climate. I think you'd have to live in the Arctic to wear a chunky version!
She shares a number of free patterns that she used or adapted for the images in her version, such as the trees. I am working on a coffee cup pattern -- of course! And the pattern itself is a free download from Ravelry.
I don't know if I'll be done in time to use it this winter. I am still learning Fair Isle techniques, so I'm pretty slow. And some of these patterns require a lot of my brain to be engaged -- and I don't always have the capacity! But I am enjoying it.
I hope you are having a good week, whether it started with a day off for MLK Jr.'s birthday or not. And don't forget to check in with Nicole to Keep Calm and Craft On.
