It's been an odd autumn/winter term, we went through probably every single seasonal ailment possible; I feel so drained most of the time and knitting has been slow going and mostly for publications, but I do have something to show. Last issue of Yarn Forward landed here about a week ago with one of my patterns in it.
The design is a simple one that's knit in one piece from bottom up with all the trims added on at the end and patch-pockets for all of their special treasures as a finishing touch. A perfect layering piece to throw over a top for just a tad of extra warmth and leaving their arms free, waistcoats work for any season.
Rowan's Purelife DK wool was an absolute pleasure to knit with. I do have a soft spot for knitting with pure wool and the moment I opened the package I was in my wool heaven, it smelt earthy and slightly sheep-y - it was gorgeous.
