Faeroe

Of the many projects that I  have in the weaving-in-ends stage of knitting, I chose to finish this one first because chunky knits are always the easiest to handle.   The original pattern called for Rowan Big Wool, but I just substituted Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick and Quick (in Cobalt) in its place.

I mis-calculated using 10 skeins for this project, because I ended up with 3 full skeins left over.

Let me tell you, this thing is warm and comfy.  Now that the weather has chilled a bit, I can picture myself getting cozy on the couch wrapped up in my Faeroe with a nice cup of tea.

Cables…in RED!

Here’s a hat and scarf of my design knitted a few months ago and gifted to a co-worker.  My very first set!  I usually don’t bother with knitting a set because I am using yarn from my stash (still trying to cut) and probably don’t have enough of the same kind to make one.

The red was not intentional for the holiday season.
