Lovely if we ever get snow...

I treated myself to some hand-dyed cashmere to make a neck-warmer.

The yarn is Hand maiden 4-ply cashmere in the Rose Garden colour. I used the Beech Wood pattern from Ilga Leja that used to be available as a free pattern on her website. Its was a nice easy pattern which gives a great textured effect, but not so much activity as to overwhelm the handpainted yarn. I chose the colour to coordinate with my green winter jacket and am pleased with the effect.

But we did get snow! You just had to drive a bit to get to it. :-)

It's lovely on you.

Very pretty. Like the pattern. Was it a quick knit?
