Hufflepuff Cold Pine

This fall I have been knitting up a storm. These past few months have been the most prolific of my knitting career! It is a roll that I would like to keep going! Eventually I will make a round up post of all the holiday knitting I have done, but not until everything has been $_1gifted. I do want to show off some pics of my lovely Hufflepuff Cold Pine shawlett! A few weeks ago I ordered a set of beautiful interchangeable circular needles set! My Hufflepuff cold pine has been the first FO to come off the needles!

With the gift giving season impending I couldn’t sacrifice too much knitting time for a personal project, so I selected a quick and beautiful knit- Cold Pine by Caitlin ffrench. This was my first attempt at a unique lace pattern. Starting with larger needles (Size 8) and a worstedweight yarn (Rowan Creative Focus Worsted in Saffron) it was not such a scary commitment to jump into. I have made several lacy scarves before but they all relied heavily on the repetition of 10 rows or so, and they were easy to master.

The end result after blocking (a must with both this pattern and especially with this yarn)is perfection. A perfect explosion of sunshine to wear around my neck just as the days are getting their darkest here in Alaska. 15613459999_aebb437828_o
