(With love to Ace & Jig for my favorite new shirt, and to Steve for the photos!)
I finished my Elderberry-dyed cowl, a yarn that came back from the mill from my sheep and that of some friends. This blend is 25% shetland, 50% mohair, and 25% alpaca. It feels so good and very warm, and I do love the way the elderberry faded to a barely-purple gray. The pattern is the Waverly Weekend Cowl by Donna Brooks. It was a fun knit, easy to memorize and quick to complete. All of which I love, and having it finished just in time for a cold snap of spring is a bonus - more time to wear handknits! I can always count on that in this neck of the woods!
