cowls for the cold, part three

Teddington is definitely warming up: I switched to a lighter jacket just after these photos were taken. But the mornings and evenings remain mighty chilly, so I'm still wearing my Pashmina Cowls, including my newest one in Musk:

As with the first two, I used Joseph Galler Pashmina and the pattern in Joelle Hoverson's Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.

I actually started this one on a transcontinental plane journey several years ago, after which it disappeared into my works-in-progress pile.

But in just one evening this week, it was off the needles and ready to wear--so satisfying! Now must see about finishing a few more of those works-in-progress...

snow queen

The snow may have melted, and the snowdrops may have faded, but I've finally finished my Snow Queen Scarf from The Most Sublime Accessories Book.

Knit with eight balls of Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK, this scarf can be wound round and round:

I adore the stony color and soft, drapey cables, but it's most definitely a scarf for a very cold day.

So it'll be tucked away til next winter, when hopefully we'll have some more snow!
