It's been so chilly I've already worn it...
The latest little bit of loveliness to grace the handknit drawer: the knitted neckwarmer (108-53) by DROPS, knit with two strands of Malabrigo lace (colorway: alpine pearl).
Oh, hello you in the mirror in your fabulous new cowl.
Smile! Why so serious? Oh yeah, 'cuz this camera takes concentration.
Self portraits are hard but I was impatient to get it on film for Ravelry (sorry to those of you for whom this is all old news). All I can say is I LOVE this thing. It's light, it's warm, it's oh-so soft - I mean, we're talking the bees' knees here. I'd had this pattern in my Rav queue for ages, just gathering proverbial dust. When I unearthed two skeins of the same colorway Malabrigo I knew what I had to do.
But what to do with the leftovers?
