Just because I’ve been working obsessively on my Swallowtail Shawl, doesn’t mean I don’t have other WIPs waiting in the wings for me to feel like picking them up again.
One of the projects that I would love to get back to (soon) is the Hibernate sweater by Christina Harris that I started in October. I cast this on and feverishly knit to the point where the fronts and back are connected at the underarm then got distracted by… I can’t remember.
I have had this Rowan Purelife British Sheep Breeds
yarn in my stash for a long time, just waiting for the perfect project to come along. It’s a bulky 100% undyed wool. The color of the yarn is determined by the color of the sheep. The label says this comes from a Black Welsh sheep. I love it.
The yarn has that lovely crisp wool feeling to it. A big difference from the merino Malabrigo I’m using but pleasant in its own wooly way.
I was a little hesitant to buy this pattern since there are only two projects on Ravelry. I have found a few little typos in the pattern, but nothing unusual or difficult to decipher. So far it’s worked perfectly. I’ll give a full review of the pattern if when I finish.
