This hat was made by following a pattern by Bernat. It is called Bernat Satin Cable Hat (free). I entertained the idea of making the cowl with cables. But that did not last long. I chose to alternate ribs (the same width as on the hat) and jersey. Much simpler.

Found Object: Orange Fingerless Gloves

Those two gloves were found a few days ago in my oldest son’s bedroom. Things tend to disappear in children’s bedrooms. I have knitted them when he was about 6 years old, some 8 years ago. I was happy to have them back and tuck them safely away, in case they are needed in the future.

A Shrug for Christmas

I was delighted to receive a gorgeous shrug for Christmas. Knitted by my mother. The yarn is a mix of acrylic, wool, alpaca, polyester and viscose. Very soft and luxurious. To be washed by hand… I definitely do not want to felt it (as I did with my Algaca Beanie). My mother expressively explained to me how to take care of it. I am sure my mistake will be a running joke for years and years. lol

I am not sure how to name the color of this yarn… Dark plum? I found that this particular color is very hard to photograph in the winter light. The ground is covered by snow and the light has a definite sharpness. After many trials and errors, I found that shiny white polyester, light beige, grey and black is the combination that allow me to capture the real color.

Being warm and cozy, this shrug is perfect when reading during the cold season. To read well through the night…
